Student Travel Grants
SIGMETRICS/PERFORMANCE is pleased to continue its practice of offering

number of applications received, available funds, and proximity of
applicants to the venue. The grant money may be awarded in the form of
registration fee waiver and/or defrayment of travel or lodging costs. The
decisions will be made by a committee consisting of the travel grants
chair and the general chairs.
