Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applicants must meet the following eligibility requirements:
- Black, African American, or members of the larger African Diaspora
- Student in computer science or related field
- Attend the three full days of the main Conference Program
- Agree to be contacted by USENIX and grants program sponsors about future events and opportunities

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.

Post-doc researchers and associates do not qualify for a student grant.

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.

Please note that speakers and presenters at the conference are not guaranteed any travel assistance.

Pre-Application Information:

Application Deadline: Wednesday, January 5, 2022

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—both those who are being awarded a grant and those who are not—are notified of their application status.

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 receive detailed registration instructions. Student Grant recipients will receive a code for complimentary registration.

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.

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

If you are traveling to the conference from outside the U.S.A., see detailed advice from the National Academies about visiting the United States.
