ISCA and Interspeech 2021 are jointly offering grants to students and young scientists, aged 34 and under in order to support their participation in the Interspeech 2021 Conference. For virtual attendance cases, each grant award includes early student registration and a 1-year ISCA student membership. In case of in-person attendance recipients will receive a cash amount to assist with the accommodation costs. If you are awarded one of the grants, the student registration will also cover one 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 2021. 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 June 18.


The grants for participation in Interspeech 2021 will be administered by ISCA.

The purpose of the grants is to support diversity of both scientific topics at the Conference as well as a wide representation of the international speech science and technology community. Applicants from all countries are eligible to apply. Preference will be given to applicants from under-represented segments of our community, both geographically and otherwise.
