Scholarship Announcement for Becoming a Robot GURU Workshop at ICRA 2015 - Deadline 11 April 2015

A Discipline-Specific Workshop is being sponsored by CRA-W and the Coalition to Diversify Computing affiliated with ICRA 2015. Student travel scholarships available for U.S. students.

The goal of this workshop is to introduce students to the exciting research area of robotics and to provide students currently doing research in robotics with valuable career-building information. Robotics is a very unique field that requires applied engineering, basic science, and strong creativity. The integration of these three areas often proves challenging. Despite this challenge, robots are becoming ubiquitous tools for many daily tasks including manufacturing, package delivery, and in home assistance. In order to prepare the next generation of robotics researchers, this workshop will address several discipline-specific challenges of robotics and strategies to overcome these challenges including the integration of hardware and software and multi-disciplinary integration required.

Undergraduate and graduate students are the primary audience of this workshop. Scholarships will be available to fund travel and attendance. Underrepresented minorities are especially encouraged to apply.

Application Deadline:
11 April 2015 at 11:59 pm PDT

The scholarship announcements are expected to be made by 18 April 2015.
