The UMAP Student Award Program is intended to help student authors be a
part of the first online UMAP conference.

Student Awards are given to students to encourage them to attend UMAP 2020.
Preference will be given to Doctoral Consortium presenters and to students
who are first authors and will present their paper at the conference.
Preference will be also given to Ph.D. students and to underrepresented
groups such as women. Students from low income countries are also
encouraged to apply, regardless of whether they are authors or not.

The UMAP 2020 conference will take place online instead of physically in
Genoa, Italy, due to Covid-19 pandemic. Therefore, student volunteers will
be requested to help session chairs (according to their time zones) manage
the virtual sessions. They should also provide technical assistance
remotely to attendees in connecting to the online platform and speakers
during presentations. Sessions will be covered by several students so that
the load for each student will be limited. Student volunteers will thus
have the opportunity to attend several sessions.

Training will be provided to the volunteers on the use and troubleshooting
of the conference tools, if necessary. Throughout the conference, the
student volunteers will also be assisted by student volunteers chairs.

Financial support will be provided via reimbursement of the registration

Apply for the grant here: <>

The application form is for grant applications funded by multiple sponsors
(not only NSF).

Due date is: June 30, 2020, 11:59 PM, PDT

Special notes:

1. We suggest you apply for the grant once you have completed the
conference registration.

2. UMAP 2020 will make use of the ZOOM video conferencing service so you
must indicate:

- Your degree of ZOOM experience;

- Your physical location (i.e., time zone).

3. In the application form, we request you to upload a proof to certify
your current student status, such as a letter from your supervisor, or
student ID.

Special rules in NSF grant for UMAP 2020


   NSF Grant is used to support students who are studying in US

   Supported students should come from different universities. Or, if two
   of them happen to come from the same university, then at least one should
   be either a woman or a member of some other minority group. Namely, we may
   not be able to support multiple students who come from the same university.
   But other grants may cover it.
