Applications due: Feb 15th 2001

Any graduate student or junior faculty member in good standing, regardless of nationality, or any other criteria, except as noted, may apply.

TCDP will pay travel and accommodation costs up to a maximum of $750. There will be up to eight (8) awardees.

While any one may apply for this travel support, the selection process will give preference to ICDCS 2001 paper authors who are graduate students or junior faculty members without sufficient travel funding. The awardees cannot receive support from any other source for the expenses funded by this program.
