ANRW Travel Grants

The IRTF are pleased to provide travel grants to support attendance at the ANRW and aim to provide support for as many student attendees as possible. ANRW travel grants are available to students currently enrolled in Bachelor, Masters or PhD programs at any university. In addition, IRTF Diversity Travel Grants are also available to support attendance at the IETF-117 meeting, including the ANRW.

ANRW travel grant awards are meant to partially cover the cost of attending and participating in the workshop. ANRW travel grants will directly pay the costs of accommodation and the workshop registration fee, and the applicant will be able to claim to reimburse the cost of economy air or rail fares. The exact number of awards will depend on the availability of funds and will be determined as funding amounts are finalized.
