ACM SIGCHI Gary Marsden Student Development Fund is now open to ALL conferences relevant to HCI

In order to better support students from and currently based in developing countries pursuing HCI/UX, ACM SIGCHI has recently revised the guideline for Gary Marsden Student Development Fund to cover all HCI relevant conferences.

In recognition of Gary Marsden’s contributions and inspiration in HCI4D and support of HCI in the developing world, ACM SIGCHI established the Gary Marsden Student Development Fund in 2015. This fund is especially intended for sponsoring SIGCHI student members who are postgraduate students (Master or PhD degree) from and currently based in developing countries to attend SIGCHI (co)sponsored conferences as well as other HCI relevant conferences. In the last one year, 21 students were awarded by the fund.
