MobiSys 2019 is pleased to provide student travel grant to broaden the participation in the main conference and co-located events (Workshops, Rising Star Forum, Poster/Demo sessions, etc.). This support is made possible by the generous support from the US National Science Foundation (NSF) , ACM SIGMOBILE, and other MobiSys 2019 sponsors. While the NSF grant is available only for full-time undergraduate and graduate students attending US colleges and universities (not necessarily US citizens or permanent residents), grants from the ACM SIGMOBILE and from other MobiSys 2019 sponsors are available for International/US full-time undergraduate and graduate students. Priority will be given to students who will benefit from attending the MobiSys main conference and its co-located events, but are unlikely to attend due to the unavailability of travel funding. Please note that the travel grant is on a reimbursement basis. Furthermore, underrepresented minorities and women students are particularly encouraged to apply.
