|Travel Grants & Student Activities|
IEEE CIS and INNS will jointly offer a limited number of travel grants for students presenting a paper at IEEE CIS-sponsored conferences. One application system will be used, with the IEEE CIS Student Members and Graduate Student Members benefiting from the IEEE CIS Outstanding Student Paper Travel Grant and the INNS Student Members benefiting from the INNS Travel Grant. Students must have both IEEE and IEEE CIS memberships (CIS is listed as an optional society membership under IEEE) and/or INNS membership.. Past history of the IEEE CIS travel grants, as well as more information, can be viewed at the travel grants webpage.
To apply for the support one must first register in the Grant Application System at www.ieee-cis.org/gas. Submissions are to be entered into the Grant Application system. Paper and email applications will not be accepted. Please note the following date for submission, review, and notification of travel grants:
Only complete applications from eligible student members and members will be accepted. Please, note that there is no need to send proof of IEEE and IEEE CIS membership as membership will be verified through the IEEE member databases.
The student applicants will be required to present proof of university attendance documentation at the conference (this is not a student card; please see the website for details).
Travel grant amounts have not been determined yet. See previous travel grant results for an indication of possible travel grant amounts. If you have any questions please contact Dr. Keeley A. Crockett.
