Student Travel Scholarships
The IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Fault-Tolerant Computing is soliciting applications for travel scholarships to partially offset the cost of students planning to attend DSN-2002 in Washington. To be eligible, the applicant must be enrolled in a degree program at the time of DSN-2002. Authors of accepted papers, students currently submitting papers to the Student Forum, and others are all welcome to apply. Participation, such as presenting a regular paper or a paper in the Student Forum will be used as one criterion in awarding the scholarships, however. The Technical Committee anticipates awarding scholarships in the range of $500-$1000, with the actual award size being determined by the distance involved and anticipated expenses. The exact number awarded will depend on the amounts awarded for each. 
Application Procedure
To apply, submit a write-up not exceeding 500 words summarizing your current research related to dependable computing and describing how it is relevant to DSN-2002, what you hope to learn by attending the conference, and how you expect it to affect your future research directions. Also include your name, postal address, electronic mail address, telephone number, and fax number. Applications must be received no later than April 22, 2002 and should be submitted to the chair of the student forum:
