TCS Women Travel Scholarships are intended for researchers at the beginning of their career. 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 April 25, 2019 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 if you do not yet have an advisor) send a letter of support to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 25, 2019. Your advisor’s letter should also describe the availability of other travel funds. 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 April 25, 2019) will not be accepted. You will be notified about your status by May 1st, 2019 which is prior to the STOC early registration deadline and hotel cut-off date.
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.
