The purpose of this mentoring workshop is to encourage graduate students
and senior undergraduate students to pursue careers in programming
language research. This workshop will provide technical sessions on
cutting-edge research in programming languages, and mentoring sessions
on how to prepare for a research career. We will bring together leaders
in programming language research from academia and industry to give
talks on their research areas. The workshop will engage students in
a process of imagining how they might contribute to our research

This workshop is part of the activities surrounding ICFP, the
International Conference on Functional Programming, and takes place the
day before the main conference. One goal of the workshop is to make ICFP
conference more accessible to newcomers. We hope that participants will
stay through the entire conference.
These scholarships will provide funds towards airfare, hotel, and
registration fees for attendance at both the workshop and ICFP, but are
limited. We welcome students with alternative sources of travel funding

Selected participants will be notified by 2 August and will need to
pre-register and commit to attending the workshop by August 4.
Applicants who apply after July 31 may be eligible to receive funding,
