Applications for Financial Aids Provided by APSCE

To assist in fulfilling part of the goals of the Asia-Pacific Society for Computers in Education (APSCE)--fostering and sustaining a vibrant community of young researchers within the region, a financial aid program has been set up this year to support up to a maximum of five recipients, for the amount of US$ 600 each, by the Society. Qualifications and selection criteria are listed below.


Qualifications

  1. Graduate students who are in need of financial support--an email from his/her advisor indicating that no or very limited financial support is available from the affiliated institution for the student to attend ICCE2007;
  2. First-authors or presenters of accepted papers of ICCE2007 (i.e., main conference papers, workshop papers or DSC papers);
  3. Applicants whose average overall ratings of their accepted papers fall in the "inclined to accept" or "definitely accept" category (average score above 4).

Selection Criteria

If more than 5 applications are received before the submission deadline, the top 5 papers with the highest average ratings, or papers that have been recommended by the paper review panel for Best Student Paper Award/Best Paper Award will be awarded the financial aid. In addition to the aforementioned criteria, priority will be given to self-supporting doctoral students (students who do not manage to secure a scholarship at the respective universities and self financed their own studies accepted for presentation at ICCE2007), followed by other doctoral students, and then master students who meet the aforementioned criteria.
