Travel grants

for Russian school children participating in informatics, mathematics, and physics competitions

Competitions and tournaments are places for children to meet, learn to cope with stress, and practice solving complex problems. While we welcome all children, independently of gender or financial situation, we believe that it is especially important to have more female participants take part in these activities.

We offer two grants for teachers who are organizing a trip for teams of school children participating in a mathematics, informatics or physics competition taking place outside their own region.

The Barbara Liskov Grant

Barbara Liskov won the ACM Turing award – the world’s most prestigious award in informatics – in 2008. She led the work of groups that designed the programming languages CLU and Argus, which though are now out of use, were important for the development of other languages. Now Barbara works at MIT and supports women in science.

This grant is aimed at helping cover costs of participating in Federal or International competitions for female and mixed teams.

With the endorsement of the CiE-SIG Women in Computability

  • There must be at least one female member in the team
  • Priority is given to teams with a larger number of female members
  • The status of the competition must be confirmed by our committee
  • All expenses must be confirmed with appropriate receipts

The Ekaterina Yuschenko Grant

Ekaterina Logvinovna Yuschenko created one of the first programming languages in the world and authored the first textbook on programming in the Soviet Union. She launched her career in science thanks to Uzbek State University and its support for students from other regions.

This grant is aimed at helping cover costs of participating in Federal or International competitions for teams from regions of Russia outside of Moscow, Moscow oblast, and St. Petersburg.

  • The team must be from a region of Russia other than Moscow, Moscow oblast or St. Petersburg
  • The status of the competition must be confirmed by our committee
  • All expenses must be confirmed with appropriate receipts

Apply

Applications are open from December 1 to February 1
and from June 1 to September 1.

In the case of both grants, while we cannot guarantee full coverage of costs, as this largely depends on the number of candidates, we will do our best.
