NSF Student Travel Awards

Thanks to the generous support from the National Science Foundation, we will provide scholarship awards to selected US-based students attending The Web Conference 2024 in person. The awards will be competitive in the sense that not every student will receive a Travel Award. Awardees are expected to register to the main conference and will have to make their own arrangements for travel and accommodation.


Applicants need to be a full-time student (undergraduate or graduate) at a US-based academic institution. Applicants also need to be a SIGWEB member at the time of applying to this award (to become a member of ACM SIGs, you don't need to be a member of the ACM - students can join SIGWEB for USD19).

Applicants do not need to have an accepted paper to be eligible. The following groups of students may be given priority (in no specific order):

  • Students selected to present at the doctoral symposium
  • Students from under-represented groups
  • Students actively pursuing research with papers accepted in the main conference or workshops

Application Procedure

Please submit the following materials (in a single PDF file) with your application:

  • Student's full name and email address
  • Name and address of student's school
  • Advisor's full name and email address
  • SIGWEB membership data
  • A one-page abstract from the student, summarizing a broad view of his/her research with motivation, problem description, approach, and progress; the abstract must be written in English and needs to comply with the two-column ACM proceedings format.
  • A 1-2 page CV of the student.
  • (Optional) demographic data for reporting purposes: Gender, Ethnic background

Submissions must be made through the EasyChair system at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=thewebconf2024 (select the NSF Student Travel Award track).
