UAI 2014 - Scholarship Program
A limited number of scholarships will be provided to authors (students or not) of accepted papers in order to subsidize travel, registration, and housing expenses for UAI 2014. Whether the paper is a poster or an oral presentation is irrelevant.
Student recipients may be asked to help us with 2-3 hours work, where 'helping' mostly means sitting behind the registration desk, helping with distribution of materials, solving small problems with registrations and equipment, and the like.
Successful applicants for scholarship will be notified by Friday, 27 June 2014.
Authors wishing to receive a UAI 2014 scholarship are asked to send a one-page application giving the following information:
- Phone number
- Paper accepted at UAI 2014
- Amount of support expected from your home institution, if any
- Expected travel cost
- Whether you have applied for or are receiving any other support
- Type of degree and expected completion date
- Name of advisor
- Whether you are interested in becoming a student volunteer (as explained above)
Applications (plain text or pdf) should be emailed with the title "UAI SCHOLARSHIP", to: firstname.lastname@example.org before Saturday, 14 June 2014.
Even if your scholarship gets accepted, you may only get a part of the amount you applied for - there is a fixed budget which has to be divided over all good applications.
If you do not receive a scholarship, there will be an opportunity to be a volunteer. Thus, please also consider applying to be a volunteer.
