IEEE Signal Processing Society Travel Grants

The IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) is pleased to provide travel grants on a highly competitive basis to student authors and non-student authors in developing countries.

The grants will be awarded to a limited number of applicants who have a genuine need for support, and the paper quality will be taken into consideration. SPS membership is required at the time when the application is made. Find out more information on how to join SPS.

The grants can only be used to cover the travel expenses for applicants to attend the approved conference.
