A limited number of travel grants is available for students who would not otherwise have resources to attend RTA 2012, and whose attendance would benefit both the applicant and the conference.
The number of grants and the per-grant amount will be established on a case by case basis, depending on the applicant's need and the total amount of funds available for the program. Applicants should note that a grant is limited, and that costs in excess of the grant will not be reimbursed.
Grants will be awarded based on the grant committee's assessment of the applicant's genuine financial need, the potential benefit to the applicant's education, research, and career, and the potential benefit to the conference. Among those applicants who genuinely could not attend the conference without a grant, the evaluating committee gives priority to (co-)authors of accepted papers.
Applicants should download and fill the application form and send it by April 16 by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants should have their supervisor send a recommendation email to the same address and by the same deadline. This letter should describe the student's work, the benefit to that work of attending the conference, and an assessment of the student's financial need.
Funds will be provided after the conference, upon submission of receipts.
