2018 Oregon Cyber Security Day

Ford Alumni Center, Lee Barlow Giustina Ballroom, University of Oregon

Student Travel Grants

With the sponsorship of the National Science Foundation, students from within the US can apply for travel grants to cover some or all of their travel (airfare or car mileage) and lodging expenses in order to attend the Oregon Cyber Security Day on April 20, 2017. Awardees will have to pay for their trip first, and will then receive reimbursements after following the procedure described in the travel grant award notification.

This year preference will be given to undergraduate or graduate students who have a strong interest in conducting research in cyber security, including those who have demonstrated their calibre in this field through software, publication, and other tangible means. Female and underrepresented applicants are particularly welcome.

Application Process

An application consists of:

  1. A one-paragraph application;
  2. A student CV no more than two pages; and
  3. A supporting letter, preferably from the applicant’s supervisor or a professor in the department of the applicant.

The one-paragraph application should include the student applicant’s institution, GPA, degree being sought, research interests if any, and any information that the applicant feels relevant. Also include the estimated expenses (in US dollars) for attending the event (total, and breakdown by travel and lodging).


E-mail the application to secday@cs.uoregon.edu. An applicant can expect to receive a response in approximately one week. Applications will continue to be processed until April 20 or when no more travel grant funding is available.
