Student Travel Grants

In order to motivate young researchers to participate in the IEEE Design Methodologies Conference 2023 in Miami, the IEEE PELS TC10 will sponsor a number of Student Travel Grants (up to $1000 each). The Student Travel Grant is intended to “partially” cover the costs of attending and participating in the 2023 event, such as:

  • Airfare and ground transportation costs
  • Hotel/Accommodation costs
  • Conference registration fees to support their attendance.

To qualify for the attendance grant, you must:

  • Complete the application procedure as explained below.
  • Register for the conference.

Recipients of these grants will be selected by the IEEE DMC Committee based on the qualification and financial needs of the applicant. Note that the award recipients will need to pay for their expenses ahead of time and get reimbursed after the conference. Receipts and invoices must be provided to claim the travel grant. A check of up to $1000 will be issued to the awardees during the conference with W-9 (US citizens or permanent residents) or W-8 (others) tax form submission. These forms are available here.

Additionally, the grant recipients will be encouraged to join TC10 and further excel their knowledge and widen their contact network. The successful recipients will be invited to participate in the conference activities as part of the local organization team and assigned a mentor from the conference organizing committee.

The deadline for all applications will be August 18th 2023. The grant recipients will be notified on the day of the conference.
