ACM SIGIR invites students from underrepresented groups in technology to apply for a SIGIR 2016 Google Travel Grant.

Grants are available for students from all traditionally underrepresented groups in technology (including, but not limited to, African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, persons with disabilities, women and veterans). This grant will cover the cost of the SIGIR registration fee and a $500 travel stipend, for a total of $1000 USD per recipient.

Students are not required to have accepted papers at SIGIR. We are especially interested in assisting first timers and those interested in exploring SIGIR.

To apply, complete the form found at: http://goo.gl/forms/uZ1yB9p1My

The application period will close on May 18th and applicants will be notified of the outcome on or before May 27. SIGIR takes place in Pisa, Italy July 17-21.

For more details or questions, please contact Amanda Arenas (arenasa at google.com) or Diane Kelly (SIGIR Treasurer, dianek at email.unc.edu).

Please help us advertise by circulating this announcement to any interested parties! Speaking of parties, make sure students know that SIGIR sponsors a student luncheon and a student party at the SIGIR Conference!

Diane Kelly, SIGIR Treasurer
