Student Accommodation Scholarships

The organizers have arranged scholarships for student accomodations at the Iowa House Hotel (one block from the meeting site) the night of September 11. While the organizers will strive to grant all requests from students, the following priorities will be used if there are more requests than the available scholarship funds can satisfy:

  1. having a financial need,
  2. being an undergraduate, and
  3. willing to share a room with another student.

Interested students should email a separate request for this scholarship to by August 28, 2009 providing the information above as well as the name of a preferred roommate, if any. A faculty member at the student's institution should also send a brief supporting email, mentioning the student's role, if any, in the faculty member's group, and addressing the need for the scholarship.

Scholarship applicants will be notified by email by September 4.
