Diversity, Inclusion, and Student Grants

This year, as in years past, we have been working hard to provide as much travel support to as many conference attendees as possible. IMX 2023 will be carrying out a number of initiatives to support diversity and inclusion in addition to student participation.

Gary Marsden Travel Awards (GMTA) 

In recognition of Gary Marsden’s contributions and inspiration, SIGCHI established the Gary Marsden Travel Awards (GMTA) to support its members in attending ACM SIGCHI conferences. Eligible members can be undergraduate and graduate students, early-career researchers (such as those who are ≤ 5 years post-graduation), and those suffering from financial hardship or lacking institutional support. 

Please see our call for applications on Submittable for specific criteria, details of the award, review timelines, and for applying.

Deadlines are on the 9th of January, February, March, May, July, September, and November at 11:59 PM AoE. If we offer extensions, the new deadline will be noted on the application website. 

You must apply by a deadline more than one month before the start of the conference that you plan to attend (we recommend applying as soon as you have your conference acceptance). For transparency, award recipients will be announced periodically on the SIGCHI website

Please email sigchi-4all@acm.org with any questions about the GMTA or fixes/feedback for the application form.
