Student Support

Limited travel funds are available for students and early career researchers, depending on location:

For graduate students or postdocs currently at academic or research institutions within the U.S., funds have been provided by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF). These will be administered by members of the workshop committee through Morgan State University (MSU), Baltimore, Maryland. Employees of the U.S. or other national governments are not eligible, although non U.S. citizens are.

We will attempt to cover all costs associated with the workshop.  This includes international air and local transportation, conference registration, and room and board at the conference hotel (excluding incidentals such as bar drinks charged to the room). The room covered in this case will be a shared one; for a private room the awardee will have to pay the difference in cost. If we have more requests than we can honor, we will consider partial awards. Once we have an idea of the total requested we will inform you regarding fund availability. Note that we expect recipients to attend the pre-workshop day of tutorials, unless the recipient has already done so at the previous Adjoint Workshop.  The additional expenses for this extra day will also be covered by the workshop funds. The decision regarding each request will be based on the amount requested, the recipient's position and research subject, the number of requests from the same institution, and other factors in accordance with NSF policy.

To apply for these funds, send an email to Ronal Errico (ronald.m.errico@nasa.gov) before 15 December with:

  1.       Name
  2.       Position
  3.       Institution
  4.       Research subject
  5.       A short paragraph describing your work
  6.       The name and position of your institute supervisor and ask him or her to email a recommendation for your attendance and support.
  7.       Specifically state what expenses you would like us to cover and whether you plan on attending the pre-workshop tutorials.

DO NOT make hotel or transportation reservations on your own if you are requesting funds! Instead, specific instructions will be provided at a future date. We will provide a response to all requests by 15 January 2017.

   

For early career researchers in any geographical region, funds are also available from the U.K. EPSRC DARE (Data Assimilation for the REsilient City) project, with no restriction on the location of the applicant.  These are for early career researchers (PhD students and postdocs) with limited previous experience and knowledge of data assimilation.  They will be administered by members of the workshop committee through the University of Reading, UK.

We will attempt to cover all costs associated with the workshop, in accordance with University of Reading travel and expenses policies.  This includes international air and local transportation, conference registration, and room and board at the conference hotel (excluding incidentals such as bar drinks charged to the room). The room covered in this case will be a shared one; for a private room the awardee will have to pay the difference in cost. If we have more requests than we can honor, we will consider partial awards. Once we have an idea of the total requested we will inform you regarding fund availability.

The decision regarding each request will be based on the amount requested, the recipient's position and research subject, the number of requests from the same institution, and other factors in accordance with University of Reading and EPSRC policies.
