THE 16TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON MOBILE DATA MANAGEMENT (IEEE MDM 2015)
STUDENT TRAVEL GRANTS
(http://mdmconferences.org/mdm2015/student_travel_grant.html)

The IEEE MDM 2015 conference (http://mdmconferences.org/mdm2015/) is
pleased to announce the availability of student travel grants from the U.S.
National Science Foundation (NSF) for U.S.-based students.  Each travel
grant will cover up to $1,000 USD towards conference-travel related costs.
The amount of support provided to each student is to cover the student’s
conference registration fee (early registration only),  economy airfare
from a U.S. carrier, and logging for up to four nights (June 15, 2015 to
June 18, 2015).  Recipients of the grants will be reimbursed after the
conference for their conference-travel related expenses with valid
receipts.  We especially encourage female students and other
under-represented students in the field of Computer Science to apply.  In
addition, special consideration will be given to exceptional undergraduate
students.

* ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA
