    Dear Friends,

    On behalf of WSC 2019 Program Chair, I'm glad to announce additional student travel award opportunities available for WSC 2019.

    In addition to the student travel scholarships mentioned at the bottom of the WSC 2019 Call for Papers (http://meetings2.informs.org/wordpress/wsc2019/call-for-papers/), ACM SIGSIM is offering up to 15 student travel grants in order to support the professional development of Ph.D. students working in the field of modeling and simulation. Individual awards of up to $1000 will be made. These awards may be used for travel, lodging, and registration expenses. Applications MUST be made before September 8th. Details of the application process can be found at: http://acm-sigsim-mskr.org/awards.htm#Travel
    Students who have already applied for a WSC student scholarship may also apply for an ACM SIGSIM travel grant. At most one of these two grants will be given to any individual, however.
