IEEE International Mediterranean Conference on Communications and Networking
5–8 September 2022 // Athens, Greece

Student Travel Grants

On a competitive basis, 2022 IEEE MeditCom offers a number of student grants to students who have registered and co-authored an accepted peer-reviewed paper for the conference. IEEE ComSoc sponsors these grants to encourage participation by students who would normally find it difficult to attend. Women, minorities, undergraduate or beginning graduate students, and first time MeditCom attendees, are especially encouraged to apply. No more than one student per institution will be supported. No postdocs, faculty, or other senior research personnel may be supported by the grant. These student grants will enable sharing scientific information and stimulating research interests for students in the field of communications and networking.

APPLICANT ELIGIBILITY

  1. Each applicant must be a Student Member or Graduate Student Member of the IEEE Communications Society at the time he/she applies for the grant;
  2. Each applicant must be a co-author of an accepted paper in 2022 IEEE MeditCom and present it at the conference;
  3. Each applicant must be a full-time student registered toward a Bachelor, Masters, or PhD degree in computer science, engineering or related field in a college or university when submitting the application;
  4. During the expense reimbursement stage, the student applicant must show the proof of having registered to attend 2022 IEEE MeditCom.

HOW TO APPLY FOR STUDENT TRAVEL GRANT

Applicants should create their application as a single PDF file, following the format described above. Go to EDAS and login. Select the travel grant which you want to apply, and then submit the application.
