Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International college and university students at accredited institutions for attendance at a conference related to technology research. Funding is intended to allow full-time students studying computer science to participate in the conference and related workshops. The USENIX Student Grant Program provides funds to cover registration fees and assist with travel and accommodation expenses, if applicable.

For Student Grants, preference is shown to:

  • Students whose areas of study significantly overlap with the conference topics and who write a concise essay (supporting statement) outlining their studies and research.
  • First-time applicants and those who have not received a grant in the past 12 months.
  • Students from institutions not traditionally represented at USENIX.
  • Financial need.
  • Degree level (undergraduate, graduate)
  • Students who are both presenting a paper at the event and do not have alternate sources of funding available to them.

The 18th USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation (NSDI '21) will take place as a virtual event on April 12–14, 2021. NSDI focuses on the design principles, implementation, and practical evaluation of networked and distributed systems. The goal is to bring together researchers from across the networking and systems community to foster a broad approach to addressing overlapping research challenges.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Student Grant recipients will receive a complimentary registration to the conference for which they have received their grant funding.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Student grants are for current full-time students studying computer science.

Post-doc researchers and associates do not qualify for a student grant.

Please do not apply for a grant if you have other funds available to you, such as through your faculty advisor, or if you have received a grant through USENIX in the past year.

Please note that speakers and presenters at the conference are not guaranteed any travel assistance.

Pre-Application Information:

The deadline to apply is Thursday, April 1, 2021.

Notifications of awards are sent about two weeks after the deadline.

Do not register for the conference--even if you are an author or a presenter--until you are notified about your grant. If you receive a grant, you will be sent detailed registration instructions. Student Grant recipients will receive a code for complimentary registration; grant funds are intended to be used for travel and/or hotel expenses.

Applicants can be awarded only one grant each calendar year. Those who qualify are welcome to apply for both a Student Grant and a Diversity Grant for the same conference, though only one grant will be awarded.
