Student Travel Grants

We are very pleased to be able to offer $500 towards transportation expenses and 4 nights paid lodging to 3 students who wish to participate in the 2008 DHCS Colloquium, but cannot afford to attend. These grants are made possible by the generous support of the Computation Institute at the University of Chicago.


* Grants are available for full-time, enrolled graduate and undergraduate students

* Recipients will be selected by the DHCS Program Committee with preference going to students who have been chosen to present papers, posters or demos at DHCS, and those who would otherwise not be able to attend

* A $500 travel stipend can be applied to your documented transportation expenses

* Recipients will have rooms reserved and paid for on or near campus (in any case, within short walking distance to all colloquium activities). Exact check-in / check-out times are TBA but are likely to be after 3pm on Friday, October 31st, with check-out before noon on Tuesday, November 4th.
