Call for Student Scholarship Applications

SOSP 2019, through generous donations from conference sponsors, will offer scholarships to assist students attending the conference. Each scholarship (fully or partially) reimburses the SOSP conference registration, a shared hotel room during the conference, and round trip air travel to/from the conference. scholarship students may be asked to scribe a technical session. These services are greatly appreciated, and provide additional networking opportunities with other conference participants. Actual duties will be assigned as the conference nears, but students should identify any time constraints in their application forms.

These funds are limited, and will be based on a combination of need and merit. Scholarship recipient contact information will be made available to scholarship sponsoring organizations.

Who should apply

Funding is available to students (graduate and undergraduate) from any educational institution in the world. We especially encourage applications from women, Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities, and all other groups underrepresented in at SOSP, who will be given additional consideration in the scholarship evaluation process. We also recommend them to attend the Diversity Workshop at SOSP (details to come). The workshop may have additional scholarship funding, and applicants will be evaluated and awards determined through this unified scholarship application process.

Applicants must be members of the ACM. See the ACM site for a student membership application. Note that ACM provides reduced rates for students residing in economically developing countries.
