Who should apply
Any graduate student or junior faculty member in good standing, regardless of nationality, or any other criteria, except as noted, may apply. The decisions will be based as much as possible on both what the individual may get from the conference and may bring to the conference. The award will pay travel and accomodation costs up to a maximum of $750. There will be up to eight (8) awardees. While any one may apply for this travel support, the selection process will give preference to HPDC-10 paper authors who are graduate students or junior faculty members without sufficient travel funding. The awardees cannot receive support from any other source for the expenses funded by this program.
How to apply
Applications and supporting letters for a student travel grant should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible, but no later than June 18, 2001. Award annoucement will be made around July 6. Applications should include:
Applicant's school: because we have several sources of funding we need to be able to distinguish those students in US schools from all others.
Airfare: the price of round-trip, "tourist class" airfare in US dollars from the student's city to San Francisco (where the conference will be held). Please do not make any reservations until a member of the Committee contact you with details.
A letter from the student's advisor (only for student applicants): a letter of recommendation to this travel support program, indicating why the advisor believes the student would benefit from attending HPDC-10 and confirming that the student is a doctoral candidate in good standing. The advisor should clarify whether other sources of funding are available.
At the Hotel Nikko San Francisco, under the group name of 'University of Arizona', HPDC-10 is holding 125 rooms from Aug 5 through Aug 8. The block is for standard rooms guaranteed at $195 a night plus tax. The cut-off date for all reservations is July 13.
