Grant Description
Grants to USA, Canada, and International computer scientists from underrepresented groups in industry or in academia to participate in a conference offered by the funding source. Funding is intended to cover conference attendance costs for full-time computer scientists who identify as female or who are members of groups underrepresented in tech, and who wish to attend USENIX conferences and workshops.


  • Others (see text field entitled "Additional Eligibility Criteria" for clarification)

Additional Criteria for Eligibility
All computer scientists from academia or industry who identify as female or who are members of groups underrepresented in tech are encouraged to apply.

- Identify as a female or a member of another underrepresented group in tech
- Work in or study computer science or related field
- Attend the three full days of the main Conference Program
- Agree to be contacted by USENIX and diversity grants program sponsors about future events and opportunities

For Diversity Grants, preference is shown to:
- First-time applicants and those who have not received a grant in the past 12 months.
- Applicants with significant financial need.
- Applicants presenting at the event who do not have alternate sources of funding available to them.

Post-docs are welcome to apply for Diversity Grants.

Pre-Application Information
The application deadline is Tuesday, December 13, 2022, at 11:59 pm Pacific Time.

Grant applications become available on the USENIX website about 3 months before the conference, with an application deadline set at approximately 7–8 weeks before the event. Notifications of awards are sent about two weeks after the deadline. This timeline may vary depending on the event.

Do not register for the conference--even if you are an author or a presenter--until you are notified about your grant. If you receive a grant, you will receive detailed registration instructions.

Applicants can be awarded only one grant each calendar year. Those who qualify are welcome to apply for both a Student Grant and a Diversity Grant for the same conference, though only one grant will be awarded.

If you are traveling to the conference from outside the U.S.A., see detailed advice from the National Academies about visiting the United States:
