Student Travel Grants

ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (ACM CCS) encourages graduate students to participate in the conference by partially subsidizing the travel costs up to a maximum of $1,000 for those who would otherwise be unable to attend the conference/workshops. Travel grants are available both for the main conference (up to $1,000) and CCS Workshops (up to $500).

Who Should Apply:

Support is available for selected students from institutions worldwide. The selection process will give preference to students without sufficient travel funding and students from underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply. Students may not simultaneously draw on other sources of ACM funding for their travel or conference/ workshops expenses.

How to Apply:

Students should provide:

  • Current CV
  • Letter of support from the student’s research adviser confirming that the student is in good standing. The adviser should include a justification of financial need.
  • Personal statement of research from the student explaining the reason for attending the CCS conference/workshops and an estimate of travel expenses.

Applications for a student travel grant should be submitted at

Important Dates:

  • Submission Due: September 15, 2019
  • Notifications:  September 30, 2019

Applications submitted outside of the submission period are not guaranteed to be considered.

Any questions about the travel grants should be sent to the Student Travel Grant Chairs.
