DFRWS continues its outreach to students studying digital forensics. DFRWS and its sponsors will award one or more Scholarships for each conference each year to students who present their accepted research papers. One scholarship will be awarded to the Best Student Research Paper awardee. More scholarships may be awarded, depending on sponsorship funding each year. Exact award amounts will vary, but usually cover at least registration expenses. DFRWS will notify the recipients of scholarships on or before the conference author registration deadline. Other awards (e.g. industry sponsored awards for research in specific topic areas) may be awarded after the registration deadline and are fully contingent on scholarship sponsorship by industry each year. Refer to the individual conference for additional details.
