Travel support is available for students attending the NDN Community Meeting (NDNComm 2015) and NDN Hackathon.   Funds for these travel grants are provided by the NDN Consortium.

A. Travel Grant Application		

Grants are available only for full-time students registered for the meeting. Minority and women students from diverse institutions are particularly encouraged to apply.  Preference will be given to those presenting at the meeting.

To apply and compete for a travel grant, the student applicant should email the following to ndn-registration at caida.org:

- The student vita
- An application letter which should include:
 * A brief summary of the student research interests and accomplishments to date
 * A statement about why the NDNComm attendance is important to the student
 * An estimate of the following costs of attending NDNComm: airfare, hotel and meals.  It is anticipated that travel grants will partially cover these costs of attendance.
 * A statement of whether you have registered for the meeting and proposed to present a paper, poster, etc. in the registration form (registration deadline is August 15, 2015). 

A recommendation letter from the advisor of the student applicant is also required. The letter should provide the following:

- A confirmation that the student is a bona fide Ph.D. candidate or a M.Sc./B.Sc. student in good academic standing at the given institution.
- An indication about how the student applicant would benefit from attending NDNComm.
- A statement of financial commitment to pay the remainder of the student applicants' travel cost not covered by the grant.

The advisor's letter should be emailed to ndn-registration at caida.org.
