What is covered

------------------------------


The maximum amount of support provided to each grantee will be set by the
committee, and it is intended to


partially cover the grantee's lodging and registration. Travel may or may
not be partially covered depending


on the total availability of funds and the number of awards to be given.




See below for a description of the different student travel grants that are
available.




1. NSF Sponsored Student Travel Grants


The purpose of the NSF sponsored student travel grants, with a total budget
of US$22,500, is to encourage


graduate student participation at the conference by partially funding the
costs of the students.


Applications for NSF sponsored grants are accepted only from students at
degree granting institutions


throughout the USA.




All students are encouraged to apply, whether or not they have a paper
accepted by the conference. Other


criteria will include evidence of a serious interest in data mining
research, as demonstrated by coursework


and project experience. ICDM encourages participation of women and
under-represented minorities, as well as


participation of students from under-represented institutions.




NSF grantees should pay the registration fee and travel expenses in advance,
and then the Grant will


reimburse some of these expenses. We will provide specific contact
information to grantees.


2.   IEEE TCII Sponsored Student Travel Grants

The IEEE TCII provides a budget of US$9,000 for ICDM to support additional
student travel awards this year.


All students from all countries are eligible to apply.

for their hotel reservation and also possibly for their flight. We will
provide specific contact information


to grantees. UTS will directly pay for the grantees' registration, hotel and
