Student Travel Grant

ACM MobiSys 2022 is pleased to provide travel grants to support students attending the main conference and the co-located events. Grants are available only for full-time students attending colleges and universities in and outside the US. Priority will be given to students who will benefit from attending the main conference and its co-located events, but are unlikely to attend due to 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.

To apply for a travel grant, the student applicant should send the following material to :

  1. A CV that includes the country of residence
  2. SIGMOBILE student member number, if the student has one. A SIGMOBILE student membership costs $20 for one year and can be purchased here.

    • The title(s) of accepted ACM MobiSys 2022 contributions (conference or workshop papers, posters, demonstrations, etc.).
    • Whether the student is a first-time attendee of ACM MobiSys.
    • If the student is not a first-time attendee of ACM MobiSys, whether the student has received a ACM MobiSys travel grant in the past.

    • A statement about why attending the conference is important to the student.
    • An estimate of the following costs of attending ACM MobiSys 2022: airfare, hotel, and conference registration. It is anticipated that travel grants will partially cover these attendance costs.

  1. A confirmation that the student is a bona fide Ph.D, Master’s, or undergraduate. student in good academic standing at the given institution.
  2. The impact of the ACM MobiSys program material on the student’s research progress.
  3. Other benefits the student would derive from attending the conference.
  4. A description of the student applicant’s strengths and potential contributions.
