Travel Grants

ISCA and INTERSPEECH 2019 are jointly offering grants to students and young scientists, aged 34 and under in order to support their participation in the INTERSPEECH 2019 Conference. Each grant award includes early student registration, a 1-year ISCA student membership and a cash award. If you are awarded one of the grants, your registration will be able to cover up to two of your papers.

Please note: In order to be eligible for a grant, you will need to be the (co-)author of an accepted paper at INTERSPEECH 2019. Therefore, follow the instructions to upload your final paper by July 1. However, if you intend to apply for a grant, do not register for the conference before you have received notification of the outcome of the grantee selection, on July 3.


The grants for participation in INTERSPEECH 2019 will be administered by ISCA.

The purpose of the grants is to support diversity of scientific topics at the Conference and a wide representation of the international speech science and technology community. Applicants from all countries are eligible to apply and preference will be given to applicants from areas of greater support.
