Travel grant to SDR'11 WInnComm for US students

I received this note the other day regarding a travel grant from the
WinnForum to this year’s SDR’11 in DC. It’s for US students, only, but a
great opportunity for anyone wishing to attend. Matt E., Philip
Balister,
Bob McGwier, myself and other’s are hosting an open source workshop
during
the conference this year. Matt and I will also likely be hosting our GNU
Radio User’s Group evening meeting that we have done for the past couple
of
years.

The Wireless Innovation Forum has received a travel grant from the US
National Science Foundation to support students in attending
SDR’11-WInnComm. The SDR’11-WInnComm Technical Program Committee is
seeking
applications from students at US universities.

Eligibility: Travel grants are available to students at US universities
only. Preference will be given to students who have submitted a paper to
the
conference.

Application Process: Students wishing to apply should complete the form
supplied below. Applications must be completed by no later than 9
October
2011.

Once the form is submitted, the named faculty advisor for each student
will
be contacted, asking for a recommendation and certification that the
student
is in good standing. Response from the Faculty advisor must be received
by
no later than 16 October 2011.

Awards: Applications will be evaluated by the SDR’11-WInnComm Technical
Program Committee, and students chosen to receive a travel grant will be
notified of their acceptance by no later than 30 October 2011. The Forum
anticipates that the amount of the award will be fixed at $950, which
may be
used by the student to offset the cost of transportation, lodging,
conference registration, etc. as appropriate. The actual amount of the
award
may vary depending on the number of awards made and amount of the grant
received from the NSF. The Forum may also offer additional, non-monetary
assistance including lodging at the conference hotel for a fixed number
of
nights.

Payment: Students nominated to receive a travel grant will be required
to
submit a short report on their conference experience and expenses, which
may
be used, in whole or in part, in the Forums conference report to the
National Science Foundation. A check will be mailed to each student upon
receiving their report.

Students wishing to apply can do so here. Applications must be received
by
no later than 9 October 2011 to be eligible for consideration.

I look forward to seeing you at SDR’11-WInnComm.

Kind Regards,
John Glossner
Chair of the SDR11-WInnComm Technical Program Committee

Application Process: Students wishing to apply should complete the form supplied
below. Applications must be completed by no later than 9 October 2011.

FYI: From the actual application form <
https://sdf.memberclicks.net/index.php?option=com_mc&view=mc&mcid=form_105692

, it looks like they moved this deadline up a week (relative to the
email they sent around earlier) – “Application Process: Students
wishing to apply should complete the form supplied below. Applications
must be completed by no later than 30 September 2011.” I’m making sure
to get my application in by this earlier deadline, just in case :slight_smile: - MLD
