Student Grants

Sponsored by Google and the National Science Foundation

A limited number of student grants are available to help pay for travel, accommodations, and registration fees to enable full-time students to attend the conference. Please note USENIX relies on sponsorship to finance student grants, and funding is strictly limited. We do not guarantee assistance to speakers or participants, and student grants rarely cover complete travel needs.

Applications are due by Friday, June 30, 2017.
