Student Travel Grants

Middleware 2017 has received generous support from the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) and corporate sponsors to support a limited number of student travel grants to the conference. We expect travel grants to be in the $500-$1000 range, based on applicant need and availability of funds. Note that the travel grants will be in the form of a reimbursement after the expenses have been incurred.

Travel grants are intended to broaden participation at Middleware. Students attending the conference and not presenting a paper at the main conference or workshops will be given priority; we encourage such students, including co-authors not presenting the paper, to participate in the conference via poster & demo and doctoral symposium submissions. Student presenters with funding available from their advisors will be given less preference, unless financial need can be shown. Middleware also particularly encourages students from traditionally underrepresented groups in computer science to apply.

Travel grant applications are due September 30th. To complete the application you must:

  1. Fill out the application form, and
  2. Ask your advisor to email a recommendation letter to mware17grants@gmail.com.
The recommendation letter should include: (1) The applicant's status in the institution; (2) An explanation of why the applicant would benefit from attending Middleware as well as how he/she could contribute to the conference; and (3) The applicant's current funding status and why the applicant is in need of the travel grant.

If you have any questions about the student travel grants, please email the Student Activities Chair, Timothy Wood.
