US NSF Grant

The National Science Foundation provides scholarship awards to selected US-based students attending ACM RecSys 2024 in person.


  • Student authors who are actively studying in institutions, universities, or colleges in the USA.
  • Applicants must have an accepted contribution at ACM RecSys 2024.
  • Applicants must purchase the registration fee at ACM Student early-bird registration rate. The ACM membership fee is not reimbursed by the NSF Student Travel Award.


  • Recipients will be reimbursed after the conference, upon submitting the expense receipts.
  • To get reimbursement of the airfare by using US NSF, you must book flights with US flagged carriers (a carrier operating under a code share agreement with a US carrier is considered a US flag carrier, as long as the ticket is issued using the US flag carrier’s airline designator and flight number).
  • Your airline ticket purchases must be compliant with the Fly America Act (U.S. carrier or code shared flights are used). Enclosed please find links to the GSA Fly America Act and Code Share fact sheet.
  • For eligible flights with US-flagged carriers, we suggest you book flights directly from USA airlines, e.g., United Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Hawaii Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Alaska Airlines, etc.
  • Due to the fact that the US-flagged flights to Bari from USA could be very expensive, students can book a US-flagged carrier to other Italy cities, such as Rome or Milan, and then they can purchase a local flight (not necessary to be US-flagged carrier) to arrive at Bari from Rome or Milan.
