Travel Awards

An application for a travel award must include (pdf format):
  1. A statement requesting the travel award and providing the rationale for the request and explaining your interest in attending the conference. If you are giving a presentation at the conference, the statement should include the title of your presentation, the type of presentation (minisymposium, contributed lecture, poster and the name(s) and affiliations of your co-authors. If you are speaking in a minisymposium, include the title and the name(s) of the organizer(s).

  2. A current curriculum vitae (CV) that includes your contact information, the expected date (month/year) of the award of your PhD, the institution awarding your PhD, and your advisor's name, and other relevant information including recent publications. In addition, you may provide a URL for a working Web page that expands on the information in your CV.

  3. The name and e-mail address of your advisor who should be asked to provide a 1-2 page letter of recommendation commenting on your scholarly achievements and potential and on any special circumstances. This letter is required for students. We will send a separate e-mail requesting the letter from your advisor. The e-mail will include instructions on how to submit the letter. You will not be able to directly upload the letter of recommendation as part of the application process. You should submit your application early enough for your advisor to have time to submit the letter of recommendation before the deadline.

Please read this for more information.

Criteria for Travel Awards

  1. Evidence of scholarship, as found in CV and letter of recommendation from advisor.
    • Ordinarily this means a tendency towards graduate students.
    • Students nearing completion of their program tend to have a stronger record of scholarship.
    • Student’s research should be relevant to the topic/themes of the conference.

  2. Evidence of active participation in the conference.
    • Those students making a relevant presentation tend to have better chance for support than those who are simply (non-presenting) co-authors.
    • Non-speaking co-authors of papers being presented by another person would have preference over those who are simply attending as an observer.

  3. Among those who excel on measures in #1 and #2 above, other factors may be considered:
    • Underrepresented groups (women and underrepresented minorities) may be given preference, especially for those awards made under an NSF grant.
    • Evidence of ties to SIAM (membership, student chapter participation), especially for awards made under SIAM-donated funds.

Notes:

  1. Because funds are limited,
    • Normally an advisor may expect only one student to receive an award to any given conference;
    • A student may expect to receive at most one travel award per year to a SIAM conference.

  2. Students at U.S. institutions are eligible for travel awards under an NSF grant to SIAM as well as the SIAM Student Travel Fund. Students outside the U.S. are eligible for travel awards under the SIAM Student Travel Fund only. Student travel awards are made competitively regardless of the source of funds.
