Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International computer science students to defray the costs of attending a technical conference. Funding is intended to cover registration fees for attendance at the event. Requests will be accepted from full-time graduate and undergraduate students pursuing coursework in subject areas that overlap significantly with the conference topics.

The 30th USENIX Security Symposium will be held as a virtual event on August 11–13, 2021. USENIX Security brings together researchers, practitioners, system administrators, system programmers, and others to share and explore the latest advances in the security and privacy of computer systems and networks.

GrantWatch ID#: 196994

Estimated Size of Grant:

Student Grant recipients will receive a complimentary registration to the conference.

Term of Contract:

The 30th USENIX Security Symposium will be held on August 11–13, 2021.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Student grants are for current full-time students studying computer science at accredited institutions. Post-doc researchers and associates do not qualify for a student grant.

For Student Grants, preference is shown to:
- Students whose areas of study significantly overlap with the conference topics and who write a concise essay (supporting statement) outlining their studies and research.
- First-time applicants and those who have not received a grant in the past 12 months.
- Students from institutions not traditionally represented at USENIX.
- Financial need.
- Degree level (undergraduate, graduate)
- Students who are both presenting a paper at the event and do not have alternate sources of funding available to them.

Assistance is not guaranteed to speakers or participants, and student grants rarely cover full travel costs.

Pre-Application Information:

The application deadline is Wednesday, July 28, 2021, at 11:59 PM.

Every effort is made to send out notifications to student grant applicants approximately two weeks after the grant application deadline and before the conference's Early Bird deadline. All applicants will be notified - both those who are being awarded a grant and those who are not - of their application status.

If you are applying for a grant and require a visa to attend the conference, submit your visa application as soon as possible. Visa applications for travel to USENIX conferences may require a letter from USENIX. To request an invitation letter, please email USENIX.

Do not register for the conference--even if you are an author or a presenter--until you are notified about your grant. If you receive a grant, you will be sent detailed registration instructions.

Student grants are awarded directly to the student; the grant cannot be issued to a third party such as the student's host institution.

Please do not apply for a grant if you have other funds available to you, such as through your faculty advisor, or if you have received a grant through USENIX in the past year.

Applicants can be awarded only one grant each calendar year. Those who qualify are welcome to apply for both a Student Grant and a Diversity Grant for the same conference, though only one grant will be awarded.
