Student Travel Grants

Student Travel Grants

CODS-COMAD 2023, with generous support from the sponsors, will provide travel assistance to a limited number of full-time students from degree granting institutions to attend the conference in person. While students with accepted papers are given preference, there are a limited number of grants for other students who are interested in attending. The goal is to promote participation of students from a diverse set of institutions and backgrounds who can benefit from attending a leading conference on data science and engaging with experts and their peers. We also encourage students to participate in the Diversity and Inclusion activities, we are offering additional scholarships for attendees from traditionally underrepresented segments to attend the conference. Students who are provided the travel grant MUST attend all four days of the conference physically.

The travel grant includes monetary support up to INR 4,000 to cover the travel, complimentary registration to the conference and shared accommodation at no cost. The prospective participants will have to first register to avail the grant, the registration fee will be refunded after they attend the conference.
