Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International students to cover the costs of attending a technical conference addressing privacy and security. Grants are made to full-time students, female scientists and those from underrepresented groups, and undergraduate or graduate computer science students who are Black, African American, or members of the larger African Diaspora. Grants are available for both in-person and virtual attendees.

The Eighteenth Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security (SOUPS 2022) will take place at the Boston Marriott Copley Place in Boston, MA, USA, and also as a virtual event on August 7–9, 2022. SOUPS brings together an interdisciplinary group of researchers and practitioners in human-computer interaction, security, and privacy.

Student Grant Program: The USENIX Student Grant Program provides funds to cover registration fees and assist with travel and accommodation expenses for full-time students attending accredited institutions who wish to attend USENIX conferences and workshops.

Diversity Grant Program: As part of USENIX's ongoing commitment to encourage diversity in advanced computing, USENIX offers Diversity Grants to support computer scientists interested in attending the conferences. All computer scientists from academia or industry who identify as female or who are members of groups underrepresented in tech are encouraged to apply. Applicants must also work in or study computer science or a related field, and attend all days of the main conference program for which they are applying. Successful applicants will receive funds to help defray the expense of conference attendance.

Grants for Black Students: In addition to the Diversity Grants, USENIX is pleased to offer grants to support Black computer science students interested in attending USENIX Conferences. All undergraduate or graduate computer science students who are Black, African American, or members of the larger African Diaspora are encouraged to apply. Applicants are also expected to attend the three full days of the main Conference Program, and to agree to be contacted by USENIX and grant program sponsors about future events and opportunities.

Please note that speakers and presenters at the conference are not guaranteed registration expense assistance.

Post-Docs are not eligible for Student Grants; however, they are welcome to apply for Diversity Grants if they meet the qualifications outlined above.

Pre-Application Information:

Submission deadline: Monday, July 11, 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 will be notified - both those who are being awarded a grant and those who are not - of their application status.

If you are applying for a grant and require a visa to attend the conference, submit your visa application as soon as possible. Visa applications for travel to USENIX conferences may require a letter from USENIX. To request an invitation letter, please email USENIX.

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 be sent detailed registration instructions.

Applicants are also expected to attend the three full days of the main Conference Program, and to agree to be contacted by USENIX and grant program sponsors about future events and opportunities.

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.
