NEW! We offer travel scholarships to attend STOC 2023.
TCS for All Travel Scholarships are intended for researchers at the beginning of their career. This scholarship is being made available for minorities in TCS, and anyone who identifies as such is welcome to apply; this scholarship is open to both US and international students. Preference will be given to students at the beginning of their studies. If we have sufficient funding, we will give awards to more senior students and possibly even postdocs.
To apply, you will need to fill out the following form by May 7th, 2023 (11:59 pm PDT) in which you provide basic information about yourself, an estimate of your expenses, and a brief statement:
In addition, you will need to have your advisor (or department head or other faculty mentor if you do not yet have an advisor) send a letter of support to email@example.com by May 7th. Your advisor’s letter should also describe the availability of other travel funds. Note for advisors: Specifics about alternative funding are very helpful. Statements like “funding is tight” are not very helpful. This letter should be sent with subject line “support letter for [your name]”. This is very important. Your application is not complete without this letter.
Late applications (after May 7th) will not be accepted. You will be notified about your status by May 15th, which is prior to the STOC early registration deadline and hotel cut-off deadline.
Notes: Receipts will be required for all travel awards, and reimbursements will be made after the conference. Food or visa expenses will not be reimbursed.
