In 2007 the Asia-Pacific Society for Computers in Education (APSCE) established a financial aid and scholarship program to assist in 'fostering and sustaining a vibrant community of young researchers within the region' (one of the Society's goals). The program provides awards to potential young leaders among the student community, who have no adequate funding to attend ICCE2019. Important information on qualifications, documentation, selection criteria, notification and submission deadline are listed below.
The following documents must be included in the application:
Only applicants who have met the aforementioned qualifications are eligible to apply. Priority will be given to those who have contributed as an individual to the research community in any form, or have participated in prior ICCE(s). Applicants whose papers have been recommended by the paper review panel for Best Student Paper Award/Best Paper Award/Best Technical Paper Award will have an added advantage. Special attention will be given to self-financed students of their postgraduate programs. In addition, priority will be given to students whose papers have been accepted for the theme-based conference, followed by workshop, WIPP, DSC and lastly Extended Summary papers. Those who have not received subsidized support through APSCE for attending past ICCEs will also be given priority.
Number and Amount Awarded
A maximum of 10 recipients will be awarded. This year, APSCE will reimburse the registration fees of the awardees as ICCE2019 is being conducted virtually. Successful applicants will receive the award in an open ceremony (e.g., welcome party, open ceremony, or closing ceremony). Awardees who are unable to attend the ceremony (virtually), for which they have been selected to receive this award, must forfeit their award. Awardees are required to attend all possible sessions throughout the conference.
Applicants will be notified via e-mail of the result of their applications. Successful applicants will be required to submit a report (suggested length: 500 words) indicating how they benefit from the participation in ICCE2019 one month after the conference. The report will be published in a reserved section of the APSCE Newsletter.
