Instructions for Applicants
Complete the application form below.
Your Supporting Statement is the most important part of your application: it should outline your current research, studies, or employment related to the conference topics, tell us why attending the event will be beneficial to you, your financial need, and any other relevant information such as whether you are presenting at the conference.
USENIX is committed to funding the attendance of as many grant applicants as possible based on need. However, the grant application process is competitive, and grant awards are not guaranteed. As a small non-profit organization, USENIX has limited grant funding available. Please do not apply for a grant if you have other funds available to you, such as through your employer, or if you have received a grant through USENIX in the past year.
Late applications will not be considered. Successful applicants will need to submit their Social Security Number (SSN), if applicable, to USENIX prior to receiving their grant.
By submitting this application, I agree to share my name, title, company/institution, and email address with sponsors. I also understand that USENIX may contact me about future events and opportunities. If you do not wish your information to be shared, please do not submit this grant application.
