FLoC'10 US-based Student Travel Support
Note: Application Deadline is June 7, 2010.
Applicants will be informed of decision by June 17, 2010.

FLoC has some additional funds to provide travel grants of up to $750 for
US-based student attendees of FLoC'10. Funds can be requested to cover
airfare (on US carriers, for flights from the US) and lodging (meals and
registration fees will not be funded). We expect to award about 10 grants.
The application deadline is June 7, 2010, and recipients will be notified by
June 17. This funding is available only to students attending academic
institutions in the US, regardless of immigration/visa status.

Funds will be provided after the conference, upon submission of receipts and
a short report detailing the awardee's experience at and benefit from
FLoC'10 (these reports will be used to compile a final report to our
sponsors). Awardees are expected to spend up to one day during the meeting
helping with logistics.

Applicants' advisors should send a brief statement certifying the
applicants' educational status and describing the financial need and the
merit of the applicant. Special efforts will be made to bring to FLoC
students from under-represented groups. Applications must be received by the
deadline. Applicants are required to apply at the following web form:


Advisor letters (plaintext only) should be sent to floc10 at cs.rice.edu by
June 7, 2010.

If you have questions, please contact vardi at cs.rice.edu.
