Travel Assistance Program

To encourage students to participate in computer graphics activities, SIGGRAPH 2006 offers travel assistance for selected SIGGRAPH 2006 Student Volunteers. All awards will be presented during SIGGRAPH 2006 and will be paid in United States currency. All decisions of the selection committee are final.

Travel Assistance program applicants must first complete the standard Student Volunteers or Team Leader application. Before submitting the application, applicants must answer several additional questions regarding travel costs and personal financial need, and complete one additional personal statement of no more than 300 words, as described in the application.

For SIGGRAPH 2006, Travel Assistance awards will be handled by granting eligibility up to a maximum amount, per person. After arriving in Boston, Student Volunteers must meet their commitment to the program (either 18 or 30 hours) in order to receive their Travel Assistance awards, or to be eligible to receive tickets to conference programs, receptions, and events.
