Student Travel Grants

On a competitive basis, IEEE ICC 2023 offers a number of student grants to students who have registered and co-authored an accepted peer-reviewed paper for the conference. The IEEE ComSoc, US National Science Foundation, and Women in Communications Engineering (WICE) sponsor the student grant. These grants encourage participation by students who would normally find it difficult to attend. Women, minorities, undergraduate or beginning graduate students, and first time ICC attendees, are especially encouraged to apply. No more than one student per institution will be supported. No postdocs, faculty, or other senior research personnel may be supported by the grant. These student grants will enable sharing scientific information and stimulating research interests for students in the field of communications and networking. 


IEEE COMSOC STUDENT GRANTS

On a competitive basis, IEEE ICC 2023 offers a number of ComSoc grants to students who have co-authored an accepted peer-reviewed paper for the conference. Each IEEE sponsored grant is up to US$1250 but no more than the actual travel expenses.
