Student travel grants

Funding is available to assist students both with travel to Osaka, Japan and workshop expenses (hotel, transportation to and from the airport, registration fee, reasonable meal costs, etc.). Funding is limited, and student travel grants are intended to partially cover the expenses of student participants in the workshop.

Student travel grants are generously sponsored by the National Science Foundation.
