ISCA and INTERSPEECH 2015 are jointly offering grants to students and young scientists, aged 34 and under in order to support their participation in the INTERSPEECH 2015 Conference. Each grant is worth €650, comprising the recipient’s Conference Registration fee of €295, the recipient’s ISCA membership for one year, if not a member already, and any Interspeech-2015 tutorial registrations. The balance of the grant, if any, will be transferred to the recipient’s bank account or, if that is not possible, paid in cash to the recipient at the Conference.
All grant recipients are strongly encouraged to apply for the ISCA-student doctoral workshop and also participate in the Student Volunteer Program with a workload of 3-4 sessions for the entire conference. For details – please refer to the Student Volunteer Program.
The grants for participation in INTERSPEECH 2015 will be administered by ISCA.
The purpose of the grants is to support diversity of scientific topics at the Conference and a wide representation of the international speech science and technology community. Applicants from all countries are eligible to apply and preference will be given to applicants from areas of greater support.

1. Your curriculum vitae including a complete list of publications;
