SIGHPC is generously sponsoring travel grants for four undergraduate or graduate students to attend PASC23. Two applicants traveling from within Europe and two applicants traveling from another continent will be selected. The students traveling from within Europe will be awarded a maximum grant of $600, and a maximum allowance of $1200 will be given to the selected students traveling from other continents. Moreover, PASC23 will cover the corresponding registration fee for the selected students.

SIGHPC and PASC23 will favour students who submitted a contribution to PASC23; however, this is not a requirement of the award.
