Student Travel Grant Program

Travel support for a limited number of students may be available from the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS). Students accepted into the program will receive financial support and be paired with a mentor for the duration of the workshop. Note that, even if a student can only attend the workshop remotely, they can still apply to request reimbursement for registration fees using the same application!
