who are presenting one or more papers at IEEE CIS-sponsored conferences. One application system will be used for both students and professionals.

Instructions

  • Browse to the IEEE CIS Travel Grant Application Link
  • Follow the instructions and fill all the data in the form. Note that, after acceptance, each nominee will be asked to provide a proof of student status and recommendation letter (for students), or a funding justification letter and a letter confirming the percentage of involvement (for young professionals). We will request for these documents in a second step. They can not be uploaded in this form.
  • Finally press “Submit” to complete your application!

Important Notes

  • Applicants must be IEEE CIS members in order to be able to process your application.
  • Only one author per paper will be awarded a travel grant and an applicant can receive only one grant per year.
  • IEEE/IEEE CIS Membership will be confirmed automatically through the IEEE Member database.
  • Student applicants will be required to present proof of university attendance documentation at the conference.
  • Students who receive travel grants will be expected to volunteer to assist the conference management team. Duties may include assisting with registration, ticket acceptance, audio-visual requirements, and other conference matters. It is not expected that this volunteering will interfere with any student’s opportunity to attend most of the technical sessions, nor with presenting their own paper at the meeting.
