Student Travel Grants

Student Travel Grants are initiated to assist students to share scientific innovations and arouse research interests in the field of Control Theory and Applications. ICoCTA 2023 offers a number of travel grants to students who have co-authored an accepted peer-reviewed paper on a competition basis. Funding will be granted to encourage participation by students who would normally find it difficult to attend. Undergraduate or beginning graduate students, first-time attendees, are especially encouraged to apply. The amount and number of the funds will hinge on the external sponsorship received. The funding will partially cover travel expenses for students.
