NSF Student Travel Grant

The Ninth Annual IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications is pleased to provide partial travel support for students to attend 2011 PerCom conference and its co-located workshops. Funds for this travel support have been provided to PerCom by the National Science Foundation. Note that this funding is available only for students who are attending US colleges and universities. To be eligible for student travel support, you, the student, must apply for this support no later than January 28, 2011. To apply for this support, please do the following:

  • Obtain a letter from your advisor/professor confirming that:
    • You are currently a PhD student in good standing
    • You will be attending the entire PerCom conference (and workshops if appropriate)
    • The remainder of your travel support will be covered (indicate how)
  • Write a personal statement describing your research interests, student status, and location you will be traveling from.
  • Upload the documents on EDAS as part of the PerCom 2011 (U.S. NSF supported travel grant for students).

Please note that the PerCom conference may not be able to reimburse you for all of your travel expenses due to limited travel support budget. Expenses that are eligible for reimbursement include advance student registration, hotel, and travel (air, car, or train). Expenses that are not eligible for reimbursement include regular and/or on-site registration, meals, and local transportation (taxis, shuttles, parking, etc.). Student travel grants are available in the form of reimbursements that are sent only after the completion of the conference and receipt of all required documentation and receipts. The reimbursement amount will be based on the number of awards and distance traveled, and will be capped at $1,200 per student. If you have any questions, please contact the 2011 PerCom general chair, Diane Cook, at
