EUCA Student Support Program

The EUCA Student Support Program is meant to enable promising students to attend the European Control Conference (ECC), present their papers, and become more integrated into the scientific community. Particular focus is on supporting students with low income whose attendance cannot be funded from other sources.

With the aim of supporting as many students as possible, funds from European Control Association (EUCA) will be used to cover student registration. The limited amount of funds available are not reimbursed to the student awardees, but are applied by the conference organizers to cover the conference registration (either in-person or virtual).

The maximum level of support per student is determined on a per-conference basis by EUCA and the ECC organizers.

Submission deadline: Monday, March 14, 2022

Eligibility and Requirements

In order to be eligible, an applicant must:

  • be an author or co-author of (at least) one paper accepted for presentation at the ECC;
  • present at least one of the accepted papers;
  • be a student (PhD, Master or Bachelor student) at a scientific institution.

In case the number of applicants exceeds the budget, additional criteria will be used to make a selection among the applicants. These additional criteria, in decreasing order of importance, prefer applicants who:

  • have not benefited from this scheme in the last two years.
  • will present more than one paper at the conference.
  • are the first author of the accepted paper.
  • have low income and attendance cannot be covered by other sources.

In addition, the selection committee may decide to limit support where more than one presenter from the same institution would otherwise be offered support to attend the same conference.

Final decisions will be made by a selection committee chosen by the conference organizers.

Application procedure

To apply, students must send to the ECC22 secretariat via email, the following:

  1. The EUCA Student Support Application Form (EUCA-StudentApplicationForm)
  2. Scanned confirmation that the applicant is enrolled as a student.
  3. Signed letter from an academic supervisor/co-author supporting the application form, and confirming that the student is a main contributor to the paper (with what percentage), and the student’s financial need.

Please submit the supporting documents via email to the ECC22 secretariat with Subject “EUCA Student Travel Support Application”, no later than Monday, March 14, 2022.

Decision messages about student support will be sent out on Monday, March 21, 2022.
