Student Travel Grant Information
The SIGIR Student Travel Grant Program (https://sigir.org/general-information/travel-grants/) provides funding for students to help cover the cost of travel and lodging to the following SIGIR-sponsored conferences: SIGIR, CIKM, CHIIR, ICTIR, JCDL and WSDM.
To be eligible, the student applicant must:
- be an author of a full, short, demo, or DC paper,
- be the one presenting the work at the conference.
The application process involves two steps:
- the student must submit an application, which requires the student to explain what they wish to gain from attending CHIIR 2019,
- independently, the academic advisor will be required to submit a statement of support.
Both application forms will be available on the SIGIR website during the live application period — December 11–25, 2019.
