Travel Support for International Students


Sponsored by 

 IEEE-Computer Society TCPP (Technical Committee on Parallel Processing)

 With support from US National Science Foundation


A limited number of travel assistance grants are available from the HiPC sponsor IEEE Technical Committee on Parallel Processing (TCPP). Priority will be given to students -based on merit- who would otherwise be unable to attend the conference and to graduate students presenting their own accepted work. 

Notice of awards will be made prior to the conference. The grants will be distributed post-conference in the form of reimbursements against actual travel, registration and accommodations expenses submitted by the student. The amount of the grants will be based in part on student travel requirements, quality of paper/poster, and on TCPP funds availability.



To qualify for a student travel assistance grant, a recipient must be:

• an author of an accepted conference or workshop paper and be registered for the conference,

• a Student Member of IEEE Computer Society or ACM at the time he/she submits an application, and

• a full-time student regularly registered toward a degree in computer science, engineering or related field at a university.


How to Apply

To apply for a grant, complete the information in the form below and use the Submit button at the bottom of the form to send your application to the TCPP travel grant committee. The completed application form should include a link to a single pdf file containing your paper-poster acceptance notice AND all reviews if available. The information for your advisor will be used to obtain your advisor’s official endorsement — an email will be sent to your advisor with a request to endorse your travel. The application deadline is November 4, 2017.

The application form can be accessed here. (CLOSED)

Applicants are encouraged to make their travel plans without depending on notification from the committee to ensure that lowest cost flights and accommodations have been secured. The website Accommodations page will list moderate and budget properties close to the venue hotel which offers special rates guaranteed until October 31st.
