Student Grants & Awards
Funding for the ICDH student competition has been provided through the National Science Foundation and the Technical Committee on Services Computing (TCSVC).
The ICDH organizing committee hosted a student competition event for US-based graduate students to support participant’s registration fees. The students were selected based on a project idea submission evaluated by distinguished judges. Winners will receive mentoring from selected judges. The mentoring activities will explore and expand research ideas on digital health. Minorities and women graduate students from diverse institutes were encouraged to apply throughout the diffusion of the participation grant in minority-serving institutions. Post-doctoral students were considered for support on a case-by-case basis.
