Travel Support for Eligible Students
CGO 2014 is now offering travel support for students. Each application and the grant amount will be decided on a case-by-case basis (i.e., funding is NOT guaranteed). The deadline for submitting travel funding applications is February 1st. Please send them by email in PDF format to Ramon Canal(firstname.lastname@example.org).
The travel grant application must include:
resume (including IEEE and/or ACM student membership numbers if available)
cover letter explaining reasons for attending CGO (including if you are paper)
a letter of recommendation from the students academic advisor
estimate of conference-related expenses to be funded
Declaration of consent to CGO organizers to provide Google with his/her name, email and affiliation if receiving Google funds. Plus, permission to Google to contact him/her once with a congratulatory email and, later, for opportunities if needed. If a student does not want to be contacted, he/she should state that, but that would exclude him/her from this particular grant.
Expenses eligible for reimbursement:
hotel (including internet service)
meals – up to $100 per day
local transportation (rental car, taxi, etc.) – up to $150
In order to get reimbursed, the student will have to present original receipts and fill out the travel expense claim form (we will provide the form at a later time).
