The SIGCHI Student Travel Grant (SSTG) program is intended to enable students who lack other support opportunities to attend SIGCHI sponsored or co-sponsored conferences, such as the upcoming ACM RecSys 2020 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This travel grant is intended to support students whose intention is to *present* at a SIGCHI sponsored conference, not just attend. Our *first* priority is to offer provisional grants to students *before* they submit papers, so that if a submission is accepted, the student can count on having a grant awarded for travel to the conference. Our *second* priority is to offer grants to students who have papers and other publications accepted for a conference.

The SIGCHI Student Travel Grant program provides needs-based financial assistance to students who hope to present at selected SIGCHI sponsored or co-sponsored conferences. Each award consists of reimbursements of $1,800 USD, awarded through the SIGCHI Travel Grant System, to partially cover conference registration and travel expenses including airfare (economy flights only), accommodation, subsistence, and other expenses necessary for attending the conference. Complimentary registration is not provided as part of the grant, but must be covered from the grant.

The deadline of the grant application for ACM RecSys 2020 is *Feb 1, 2020* -- before the deadline of paper submissions. If you are willing to apply for the grant, start preparing your application as soon as possible. For more information about this grant and for applying online, please visit:
