I guess we will have several cases like this. I am all for helping people
who really want to attend.

But this could also trigger hundred such applications, and with all respect
and concern for the genuinely interested students, you have no way of
verifying the ingenuity of these applications, and we need a volunteer to
check and verify, and approve. In addition there could also be some
applications where a student may be looking for a free joy ride or excursion
to Pune. How do you decide?

There's a thread discussing this and the general consensus is that student
speakers whose talk is selected will get sponsored. The exact sponsorship ie
travel and lodging charges is not arrived yet.
