The Tuck Fellowship is intended to support participation in the IWWWFB by a student or young researcher. All normal requirements for IWWWFB participants must be followed, including submission of an extended abstract following the instructions provided on this site. In addition to the abstract, applicants should submit a letter (no more than 500 words in length) including a brief description of the applicant’s background, age and a budget of travel and registration expenses to participate in the IWWWFB. In the event of joint authorship of the abstract, the accompanying letter should explain the role of the applicant in performing the research, writing the abstract, and presenting the work at the Workshop if it is accepted.
Eligibility for the Tuck Fellowship is restricted to those students who are currently registered in appropriate university research degree programs and to young researchers who have completed such a degree within the 3 years prior to application. Applicants who do not meet these requirements may be considered at the discretion of the IWWWFB Selection Committee.
Selection of the recipient will be made by the IWWWFB Selection Committee which reviews the abstracts and selects the participants in the Workshop each year. Their decision will be based on the quality and originality of the submitted abstract, and on the background information contained in the accompanying letter. The Selection Committee will recommend the recipient, and the amount of the award, to the School of Mathematics at The University of Adelaide. A second alternate candidate may also be recommended in the event that the first selected recipient is not able to attend.
