Grants to USA, Canada, and International computer scientists who are females or members of other underrepresented groups to attend the funding source's conferences and workshops. Funding is intended to assist with travel and hotel costs. In addition to the grant funds, grant recipients will receive reimbursement for their registration fees.

As part of USENIX's ongoing commitment to encourage diversity in advanced computing, USENIX is pleased to offer diversity grants at SREcon21 to support computer scientists interested in attending the conference. Applicants must meet the following requirements:

  • Identify as a female or a member of another underrepresented group in tech
  • Work in or study computer science or related field
  • Attend the three full days of the main Conference Program
  • Agree to be contacted by USENIX and diversity grants program sponsors about future events and opportunities

For Diversity Grants, preference is shown to:

  • First-time applicants and those who have not received a grant in the past 12 months.
  • Applicants with significant financial need.
  • Applicants presenting at the event who do not have alternate sources of funding available to them.

GrantWatch ID#: 198409

Estimated Size of Grant:

USENIX will provide as much funding as possible based on both the amount of overall funding available to distribute to all applicants and the specific funding requests the applicants have made.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

All computer scientists from academia or industry who identify as female or who are members of groups underrepresented in tech are encouraged to apply. Applicants must also work in or study computer science or a related field, and attend all days of the main conference program for which they are applying.

Post-Docs are welcome to apply for Diversity Grants if they meet the qualifications outlined above.

Pre-Application Information:

The application deadline is Wednesday, September 29, 2021, at 11:59 pm Pacific Time. Notifications of awards will be sent via email prior to the first day of the conference.

Do not register for the conference--even if you are an author or a presenter--until you are notified about your grant. If you receive a grant, detailed registration instructions will be sent to you.

Every effort is made to send out notifications to grant applicants approximately two weeks after the grant application deadline and before the conference's Early Bird deadline. All applicants will be notified - both those who are being awarded a grant and those who are not - of their application status.

Applicants can be awarded only one grant each calendar year.

If you are applying for a grant and require a visa to attend the conference, submit your visa application as soon as possible. Visa applications for travel to USENIX conferences may require a letter from USENIX. To request an invitation letter, please email USENIX, identify yourself as a student grant applicant (and presenter, if applicable), and include your mailing address. Note that USENIX staff need a minimum of 48 hours to process these requests. Standard business hours for USENIX are Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Pacific Time; please keep these hours in mind when making your request.

Successful applicants will need to submit their Social Security Number (SSN), if applicable, to USENIX prior to receiving their grant.

Diversity Grant recipients will have their registration costs reimbursed by their grant funds.
