Student Travel Grants

The conference organizers would like to thank the National Science Foundation for their generous support in covering these grants.

Who should apply:

We encourage applications from students from a wide variety of institutions, diverse backgrounds, and first time attendees. The travel grants will be given to students enrolled in U.S. institutions.

Award Criteria:

Given our limited funds, we are unable to provide awards to all applicants. Preference will be given to students working on security and privacy, students who can show evidence of financial need to attend the symposium or workshops, students from institutions not traditionally represented at the conference, and students from diverse backgrounds. The awards are not intended for authors of accepted papers or posters, but students with accepted papers will also be considered for travel awards.

Award Description:

We will reimburse registration costs and partial travel expenses (hotel, transportation, and meals) for a total of up to $1200. Exact amounts may vary depending on the amount of donations we receive. Reimbursements will be based on actual documented expenses.

How to apply:

Applications are due by September 4, 2023 (may change based on when funding is available). Students will be notified by September 11, 2023 about their award decision. Applications for student grants should be submitted at:

An application for a travel award will consist of a single PDF file with the following content.

  • The student’s CV
  • A statement from the student indicating:
    • What are the student’s research interests
    • How the student expects to benefit from attending the conference
  • A letter of recommendation from the student’s research advisor with a justification of the student’s financial need
