Financial Support For Students & Young Professionals

We are pleased to announce that MLSP2023 offers a number of travel grants and financial support for students and young professionals. MLSP is offering various forms of financial support thanks to the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS), SPS Student and Young Professionals (SYP) Fund, and our sponsors.

The deadline to submit the application is September 13, 2023, 11:59 PM (CEST).


To be eligible for any of these grants, applicants should be a student author or young professional (SYP), meaning that they are either enrolled in a degree-granting academic program in the 2021-2022 and/or 2022-2023 academic year(s); or they are young professionals that finished their first degree (undergraduate degree) at most 15 years ago. Participants can apply to more than one grant and accumulate awards as long as they are eligible.


Registration waivers. Eligible students and young professionals can apply to a registration waiver award. Waivers will be granted based on the availability of funds and merit.

Travel grants. Authors of an accepted paper or demo who are student authors or young professionals can apply to a travel support, which can be granted based on availability of funds and distance from Rome, Italy.

Diversity & Inclusion Grants. Students or young professionals identified as under-represented minority status or coming from low-income countries are encouraged to apply to this financial support. Grants can vary based on availability of funds.

Child Care Grants. Students and young professionals, authoring a paper, who are bringing small children to the workshop or who incur on extra expenses for in-home child care while attending the conference are encouraged to apply to this grant. Child care grants will be awarded prioritizing mother-authors, and those who express financial need.
