2018 Student Travel Scholarship

Through the generous support of Jade Vinson, the Bridges Organization is once again offering support to undergraduate and graduate students who wish to travel to the conference. The Bridges Student Travel Scholarship supported eleven students from around the world in 2016 and twelve in 2017.

We are able to provide some financial assistance for full-time students who wish to travel to this year's conference in Stockholm, Sweden. Scholarships up to $500 (USD) are available for intra-continental, and up to $1000 (USD) for intercontinental travel based on the applicant's institution.

This scholarship award is not applicable to current and visiting students from the host institution. However, students from the host institution are eligible to receive free registration if they wish to participate in the conference.

The Bridges Organization encourages applications from all students who are interested in the interdisciplinary study of mathematics, art and science. The award committee will give preference to students who do any of the following:

  • Submit a regular paper, a short paper, or a workshop paper to the conference
  • Submit work to the Bridges Art Exhibition or Short Film Festival.
  • Be available to volunteer at the conference (e.g., work at the registration desk or help with Family Day)

The Student Travel Scholarship also includes free conference registration. The number of these scholarships will depend on the number of applications received. The Bridges Organization encourages students to find matching funds and additional support at their home institutions for any other conference-related expenses.

Applications are due by April 15, 2018.

To apply for the scholarship, please complete the online application form. The completed application must include a letter from the student's department chair indicating their status as a full-time student.  This letter can be sent to Professor Sujan Shrestha at the University of Baltimore, Maryland, USA by email:
