A limited number of student scholarships are available to help defray the costs of participating in the workshop and short course. These scholarships are made available by the generous support of our sponsoring organizations.
Student scholarships cover expenses related to workshop attendance, up to a maximum level. Funds spent beyond the stated award must be covered by other sources. Travel reimbursements will be awarded competitively based on a student's proposed level of participation in the workshop (paper presentation, poster presentation, or attendance only) and a letter of recommendation from the student's research advisor. Priority will be given to those students who are presenting material and submitting a paper at the workshop.
Due to different sponsor requirements, the application process for students studying in the United States is coordinated separately from that for European students. Also, note that restrictions may apply on the eligible countries of citizenship for a scholarship, depending on the available funding sources. For information on the application process for your region, please see the appropriate section below.
Students enrolled at universities in the U.S. who are interested in applying for a scholarship to attend the workshop should complete the following:

NOTE: All expenses must be covered by the student prior to and during the workshop.

To obtain this reimbursement, you will be required to fill out a Travel Authority Form prior to the workshop and a Travel Expense Summary (TES) after the workshop. Please keep all receipts (except meal receipts) since these will be required to complete the TES. In general, travel reimbursement will be made for the following expenses:

Unfortunately, due to sponsor requirements, we are unable to provide scholarships for Non-U.S. and Non-European students. However, we highly encourage all students to seek funding from their respective institutions (e.g. advisors, professors, departments) in order to attend the workshop as student participation is an integral part of IPPW.
If you would like an invitation letter to attend the workshop, please contact Gregory Villar (Gregorio.G.Villar.III@jpl.nasa.gov). An invitation letter may be helpful when seeking funding.
There will be a dedicated student social event on Sunday evening, June 12, 2016. Details will be provided when available. Attendance at these events is optional, but participation is encouraged and highly beneficial!
