Sayan Gul Award
In honor of Sayan Gul
Sayan Gul was an undergraduate at UC Berkeley studying cognitive science and computer science, and had great potential as a cognitive scientist. He died tragically while traveling to the Annual Conference of the Cognitive Science Society for the presentation of his research. This award is intended to support similarly outstanding undergraduates conducting research in cognitive science.
New in 2019, the Sayan Gul Award supports undergraduate students with travel related costs who are presenting authors at the conference. The Sayan Gul Award includes a cash award of $500 (USD).
Student Travel Grants
Sponsored by the Robert J. Glushko and Pamela Samuelson Foundation
Up to $10,000 (USD) will be awarded to undergraduate and graduate students for travel support to attend the Conference. Any student who is first author on a full-length paper to be presented at the conference is eligible. Awardees will be selected on the basis of need and submission quality, with an effort to achieve a broad representation among academic institutions. Student first authors can indicate whether they want to be considered for the grant as part of the submission process. After paper acceptance decisions have been made, selected first authors will be contacted by the Conference Awards Chairs.
