The ANRW organizers are trying to provide as much support to as many student attendees as possible. Travel grants are available to students currently enrolled in Bachelor, Masters or PhD programs at any university.
Travel grant awards are meant to partially cover the cost of attending and participating in the workshop. The only travel expenses that can be reimbursed are:
economy air or rail fares
The award recipients will need to pay for the expenses ahead of time and get reimbursed after the workshop. The exact number of awards will depend on the availability of funds and will be determined as funding amounts are finalized.

The following criteria will be used in the selection process:
Preference will be given to applicants that do not present a paper at the workshop. The rationale is that the participation costs for a presenting author should be covered by their home institution.
Evidence of a serious interest in applied networking, as demonstrated by coursework and/or project experience, is required. Advanced students close to graduation will also be given priority, when possible, in order to aid their job search.
We strongly encourage participation of women and under-represented minorities.
After giving priority to the above criteria, (co-)authors of papers may be considered, but will be given lower priority. The rationale is to support people that contribute to the workshop but could not attend otherwise, e.g., due to budget or other constraints. The applicant should explain why it is impossible to support them from other sources.
