Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship

IEEE VR 2021 is striving towards an inclusive and accessible environment to
encourage conference participation by individuals of all identities and
with diverse backgrounds. As part of this goal, we invite early career
researchers to apply for the *2021 Inclusion, Diversity, and Accessibility
Scholarship*.
Who Should Apply?

This scholarship provides funds for early-career researchers (graduate
students and postdocs) from *under-represented or historically marginalized
groups* to attend this year’s conference. These groups may include (but is
not exclusive to):

   - Women
   - People of color
   - Indigenous persons
   - People with disabilities
   - People who identify as LGBTQIA+
   - Individuals from developing countries

We also invite researchers from *regions and countries historically
under-represented at the IEEE VR conference* to apply. The countries that
are eligible to receive a registration grant are: India, any country in
Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East. Countries in southern Europe
will also be considered. Given that we have a limited number of grants, you
will need to submit an updated copy of your CV (1 page) and justify why you
are applying for this grant in the registration form.

Undergraduate students with limited or no experience conducting virtual
reality research are encouraged to apply to the Bridge to VR Program
