|Australasian Language Technology Workshop 2014|
Student travel support
Due to the generous support of our sponsors, ALTA will be offering travel support for students to attend and present at ALTA 2014 in Melbourne. The number of scholarships available, and their value, is still to be determined. These awards can be used to reimburse some of the travel and accommodation expenses. The organising committee reserves the right to make awards as they see fit, or to alter the amount of any awards.
Students wishing to be considered for travel support must apply by email to the organizers (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 28 October. Preference will be given to students who will be presenting a paper at the workshop.
Students: How to applyIn the email, you should briefly outline why you should get the award. Bullet points addressing the selection criteria below would be excellent. Be sure to include your name, your supervisor's name, and where you will be travelling from. Please provide a rough budget outline. (Awards will be provided with a specific limit amount; this is to give us some idea.)
Please also arrange for your supervisor to send a separate email acknowledging that you are indeed enrolled as a student, and that the statements you made in the application are correct (to the best of their knowledge).
Note that the award will be in the form of a reimbursement of expenses, not a cash award. The awardees will only receive money, up to the value of the award, after producing receipts for appropriate expenses, and completing any supplied forms.
Applications will be selected according to the following criteria.

Award applications must be received no later than 28 October 2014.
