Scholarship Awards

BIRTE 2017 aims at providing an opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students to present their work and receive constructive feedback and mentoring from established researchers. Towards this, the workshop will provide a limited number of scholarship awards to students, with the additional objective of increasing the diversity of participation.

Priority will be given to students authors who submitted a paper to BIRTE 2017 and students from underrepresented groups at the workshop, e.g., female or members of other minorities and/or for those attending BIRTE for the very first time.

All applicants need to be full-time students (undergraduate or graduate) and need to attend all the BIRTE workshop sessions.

Each awardee will receive a stipend to cover early registration to attend in the BIRTE workshop and VLDB (plus any workshop on Friday). Awardees traveling from farther away will also receive additional funds up to $1000 to partially cover the expense to attend the workshop.

Awardees are expected to make their own arrangements for travel and accommodation and will be reimbursed after the workshop by submitting all required documentation and original receipts.

The scholarship awards are provided by the U.S.A National Science Foundation and Google.
