Student Stipends

Thanks to our sponsors' generosity, a limited number of stipends will be available to those students unable to obtain funding to attend the conference. Students in under-represented groups are especially encouraged to apply. This year, we will also provide stipends for postdocs based on funding availability.

We require that all students and postdocs requesting funding send an email to with the following information:

  1. If applicable, a description of previous IACR funding for travel, including amounts for appropriate conferences.
  2. An explanation as to why you need funding.
  3. An explanation of what you hope to achieve by attending TCC 2019.
Furthermore, the student's advisor or postdoc's host or institution will need to provide a letter by email that addresses:
  1. why there is a need for funding from the conference, and
  2. whether the advisor, host, or institution will provide any funding to complement awarded partial travel grants, and a commitment to a maximal dollar value they are willing to support.
The email should be addressed to and have the subject "Travel Grant Letter for (applicant name)".

Both the application and the travel grant letter must be received by 27 October 2019.
