Travel to IBPSA Conferences can be an expensive business - especially for students. In order to assist as many students as possible to participate in BS 2015 in Hyderabad, India, IBPSA World will grant a number of travel awards of up to 1000 USD to students presenting papers. The number of places is limited to a maximum of 5 grants and as a result is highly competitive.

The selection committee bases its decisions upon the following selection criteria:

*           need for financial assistance, evidenced in a letter of recommendation from the student's supervisor/ advisor of studies (must be on university letterhead);

*           overall quality of the paper;

*           relevance of contribution to the field of and/or furthering the effective application of building simulation.

To be eligible, the student must be:

*           enrolled in a graduate programme related to building simulation at the time of the conference; AND

*           the thesis project must be directly related to building simulation.

Applications MUST be supported by a letter of recommendation from the student's supervisor/ advisor / director of studies.
Applications for the award must be made by 15 April, 2015 (same date as the deadline for full paper submission) via e-mail to pieter.dewilde at plymouth.ac.uk. The subject heading of the e-mail should be "Student Travel Award" followed by the name of the student.

The e-mail application must include the following:
       The student's name;
       The name of the programme, department, faculty, and university;
       The title of the PhD or Master's research;
       The name of the student's supervisor(s)/ advisor(s);
       The faculty recommendation letter on university letterhead in PDF format.

The selection committee will base its decision upon a review of the letters of support and the final manuscripts. Therefore, to be eligible the student MUST submit the paper by the full paper deadline of 15 April, 2015.

IBPSA would like as many nominations as possible, so please contact the chair of the Awards and Fellows Committee, Pieter de Wilde, via pieter.dewilde at plymouth.ac.uk to discuss a possible nomination if required.

Payment will be made either to the academic department before the conference or directly to the student at the conference.
