SIGCPR sought strategies for developing interaction with folks that publish on your topic but don't have interest in collaborating with the SGIG. It was suggested that they invite them to the conference and place the program in other journals to build a name.
SIGGRAPH's student travel grants have been endowed. Their Chapters Chair continues to encourage the startup of SIGGRAPH Student Chapters.
SIGIR provides student travel grants.
SIGOPS has found it is not difficult to get money from corporations.
SIGARCH has been giving out student travel grants for some time. They recently decided that only SIGARCH student members would be eligible. The ISCA conference co-sponsored by SIGARCH has a traditional banquet and tends to be more costly than the student fee. For many years it was not included in student conference registration. SIGARCH is allowing members to pay for students to participate in the banquet.
SIGPLAN supports paying for students to go to their banquet.
SIGSOFT co-sponsors conferences with IEEE showing support for the community.
