Student Travel Grants

On a competitive basis, IEEE GLOBECOM 2022 offers a number of student grants to students who have registered and co-authored an accepted peer-reviewed paper for the conference. The IEEE ComSocUS National Science Foundation, Women in Communications Engineering (WICE), and Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) sponsor the student grant. These grants encourage participation by students who would normally find it difficult to attend. Women, minorities, beginning graduate students, and first time GLOBECOM 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.
