I received this note the other day regarding a travel grant from the WinnForum to this year's SDR'11 in DC. It's for US students, only, but a great opportunity for anyone wishing to attend. Matt Ettus, Philip Balister, Bob McGwier, myself and other's are hosting an open source workshop during the conference this year. Matt and I will also likely be hosting our GNU Radio User's Group evening meeting that we have done for the past couple of years.


The Wireless Innovation Forum has received a travel grant from the US National Science Foundation to support students in attending SDR'11-WInnComm. The SDR'11-WInnComm Technical Program Committee is seeking applications from students at US universities.

Eligibility: Travel grants are available to students at US universities only. Preference will be given to students who have submitted a paper to the conference.

Application Process: Students wishing to apply should complete the form supplied below.  Applications must be completed by no later than 9 October 2011.  

Once the form is submitted, the named faculty advisor for each student will be contacted, asking for a recommendation and certification that the student is in good standing. Response from the Faculty advisor must be received by no later than 16 October 2011. 

Awards: Applications will be evaluated by the SDR'11-WInnComm Technical Program Committee, and students chosen to receive a travel grant will be notified of their acceptance by no later than 30 October 2011. The Forum anticipates that the amount of the award will be fixed at $950, which may be used by the student to offset the cost of transportation, lodging, conference registration, etc. as appropriate. The actual amount of the award may vary depending on the number of awards made and amount of the grant received from the NSF. The Forum may also offer additional, non-monetary assistance including lodging at the conference hotel for a fixed number of nights.     

Payment: Students nominated to receive a travel grant will be required to submit a short report on their conference experience and expenses, which may be used, in whole or in part, in the Forum’s conference report to the National Science Foundation. A check will be mailed to each student upon receiving their report.    

Students wishing to apply can do so here. Applications must be received by no later than 9 October 2011 to be eligible for consideration.

I look forward to seeing you at SDR'11-WInnComm.  

Kind  Regards,
John Glossner
Chair of the SDR’11-WInnComm Technical Program Committee
