Student Scholarship

Eurosys, with generous donations from sponsors, offers several grants to enable students to attend the conference. Scholarships cover the Eurosys conference registration, including meals and proceedings, and possibly hotel room during the conference and funding for travel expenses.

Scholarships will be awarded by the scholarship committee based on a combination of need and merit. Students receiving scholarships need to agree to serve as a session scribe (if required) during the conference. Applicants are encouraged to participate in the poster session and in the workshops.

Who should apply?

Funding is available to all students at educational institutions, world-wide.
