We anticipate to offer travel support to 50 junior faculty from HBCU/MEI institutions, and if additional funds are available, we will consider faculty from other under-represented groups. This fellowship will be used to cover their travel expenses. The selection process will be first-come-first-serve with preferences given to those from HBCU/MEI and each organization may receive up to two fellowships. Based on the criteria mentioned above and availability of funds, if you are selected to receive a travel fellowship, you will receive a notification from the organizers before the end of March 2016.

Special reservation rate for CISE Career Workshop attendees is available here. The cutoff date for discounted reservation rate is Friday, March 18th. After the deadline, the rooms will be released. Additional reservations after this date are based on the availability of the hotel and the group rate may not be available.
There are several affordable hotel options in around the National Science Foundation, given that the location is right next to the Ballston Metro Station. We recommend that you make your room reservations as soon as possible, if you plan on attending this workshop.
