A limited number of Student Travel Grants (STG) are awarded jointly by
IEEE ComSoc, IFIP, IM 2009 Organizing Committee. The Student Travel
Grant is tentatively US$700 for students out of the United States and
US$350 for students in the United States. Notification of awards will be
made by April 13, 2009. To be eligible for one of these STG, the
applicant must satisfy all of the following requirements:

* The applicant must be an author and presenter of an accepted (and
registered) IM09 paper/poster/software tool.

* The applicant must be a full-time student registered toward a doctoral
degree in engineering, computing or related field in a college or
university when submitting the application; depending on applications we
will consider masters students as well

* Applicants may not receive more than one STG in any 12-month period.

* The application must be emailed before March 15th 2009.

When applying for an STG, each applicant must provide one appropriate
person who is willing and able to act as referee and recommend the
applicant for such an award. The "recommender" will be contacted and
asked to provide written support for the applicant's case; this support
along with other information provided during the paper review process
will be used by the STG jury to determine which individuals receive STG
