NSF Student/Non-author Travel Awards                          

 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation

IEEE MASS 2015 is happy to announce that financial assistance is now available from the US National Science Foundation (NSF) for prospective student attendees in the form of a conference registration waiver. If you wish to apply, please observe the deadline and application process below.

Important Dates:

Application deadline:   
Friday, September 4th (rolling acceptance process – please apply early)

Extended while funds remain

Individual awards will be announced on rolling bases, and no later than: 
Monday, September 16th or 1 week after the application, whichever is later.

Rules and Application Process:

The purpose of this award is to encourage and broaden the participation of students of limited financial means, and under-represented students in Engineering Education, who otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend IEEE MASS 2015. Students who are well-funded or have other means of covering their travel are discouraged from applying and will receive lowest priority. The goal is to broaden participation. Note, in particular, that awards to primary authors/presenters of accepted papers to IEEE MASS do not serve the goal of broadening participation and hence will be discouraged. All applicants must be current graduate students at a recognized US institution of higher learning. To apply, please send email to, with the subject line: “IEEE MASS 2015 TRAVEL AWARD APPLICATION” (all uppercase letters). Please attach the applicant’s brief resume (2 pages maximum) as a PDF file. In the body of the email, please (paste and) fill-in the following entries:

Advisor Name:
Gender (optional):
Race (optional)
Reason for applying: (no more than one paragraph, please)

Applications will be considered on rolling basis up to the indicated application deadline, and successful applicants will receive a personalized code that allows them to register for free. Only the named applicant will be allowed to register for free with the received code. The free registration is not transferable. We wish you good luck with your application and hope to see you at IEEE MASS 2015.
