Student Stipends

2020-11-17 Corona virus update

Due to the fact RWC 2021 will be an online event there will be no student stipends this year.

For 2021 we have (potentially) available two sources of stipends for students: The general fund for RWC stipends (which is provided from the generous support from our sponsors and a fund set up from a donation by Eric Rescorla), and (hopefully) a fund from the NSF for US students. The two funds will be administered by our Scholarship Secretary (Nadia Heninger).

IACR/RWC and NSF Awards

Requests should be made by October 18th, 2020.

  • Initial support decisions will be made by November 1st, 2020.
Requests can be made after October 18th, but they will not be considered until after the initial support decisions are made. All requests must be accompanied by a short email from the PhD supervisor that supports and justifies the request; plus a statement from the applicant as to why they deserve an award to attend the conference. Applicants should be aware that we do not usually fund all of an awardees attendance costs. Thus an applicant is likely to also need to supplement the funds from other sources.

Our NSF award allows us to support US-based young researchers (usually PhD students). We strongly encourage US-based women and members of other historically under-represented groups to request support.

The IACR/RWC support will be used for other young researchers.

The award will usually cover the cost of registration, and a limited amount of travel and hotel costs. The exact amount being dependent on the rough distance from Amsterdam of the applicant.
