Participant Financial Support
Support from the National Science Foundation allows the ITCE program to provide financial support for a limited number of student participants in each course. Support will be awarded competitively and is available only to applicants who a) are currently graduate students and b) have been accepted to the course. Participants do not have to be U.S. citizens to qualify for support.
Before beginning the application process for funding, applicants should prepare the following information:
- Short statements describing (a) your financial need, and (b) identifying other sources that will support your attendance (travel, lodging, course fees).
- Request an additional signed letter of recommendation from a faculty member (not your advisor) or other professional who is familiar with your work. Ask this individual to send a pdf of the letter on institutional letterhead directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thus, complete applications for funding will have two letters of support. (Support letters are not to be sent by the applicant.) At least one of your letters of recommendation must address your financial need.
All application materials, including letters of recommendation, must be received by the course application deadline. Do not wait until you are accepted to the course to apply. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
