ACM-W, with funding from Wipro Technologies, provides support for women undergraduate and graduate students in Computer Science and related programs who wish to attend research conferences. Exposure to the CS research world can be an important factor in encouraging a student to continue on to the next level (Undergraduate to Graduate, Masters to Ph.D., Ph.D. to an industry or academic position). The student does not have to present a paper at the conference she attends. As of 2011, twenty ACM-W/Wipro scholarships will be funded annually: ten scholarships of up to $600 will be awarded for intra-continental conference travel, and ten scholarships of up to $1200 will be awarded for intercontinental conference travel.
Please see http://women.acm.org/participate/scholarship/index.cfm for full details on eligibility and application process for this ACM-W scholarship.
Are you a student who is a presenter or co-author of a paper, but need money to attend the conference? The SIGPLAN Professional Activities Committee (PAC) provides support to help advance professional goals such as these. Even if you are not a SIGPLAN member, you can apply—as long as the event you are participating in is sponsored by SIGPLAN and you are a member of ACM. Please see http://sigplan.org/PAC.htm for full details on eligibility and application process for these SIGPLAN grants.
Are you a SIGPLAN member who would like to attend SPLASH, but cannot because of prohibitive costs associated with:
- child care
- companion care-provider travel
- long distance international travel
If so, then SIGPLAN (the sponsor of SPLASH) may be willing to provide financial support for you to attend the conference. Please see http://sigplan.org/PAC.htm for full details on eligibility and application process for these and other grants for SIGPLAN members.
