Conference Scholarships

Available for waiving conference registration fees. Scroll down to see the different types of scholarships.

Society Scholarships

We offer scholarships to help cover the cost of conference registration fees. The scholarships do not cover travel or accommodation costs. They’re not only limited to students, and are awarded based on a combination of a financial need statement and a written work description.

To apply for a scholarship, log in to the Web Portal Submission System and click on “Award and Scholarship Information” located on your User Menu page. In your application, you should provide a brief paragraph that explains why you require financial assistance, and how your attendance at the conference will be of benefit to your community.

If you have already submitted a paper for the conference or Student-Organized Colloquium, there is no need to restate your content as the reviewers will have access to your submission. However, if you have not submitted anything, you will need to provide some material showcasing your work in System Dynamics.

After the conference submission deadline (but before the scholarship deadline), you can upload your work as an “other” type. Successful scholarship applicants will be notified shortly after the notifications of paper acceptances have been sent. Funding for these scholarships comes from both the System Dynamics Society and the Sponsor-A-Scholar program.

Student Chapter Conference Scholarships

  • Recently graduated within the past two years

Note that you do not need to submit any work to either the Student-Organized Colloquium or the International System Dynamics Conference to be eligible to apply.
