A full-time PHD student is OK to use the student discount, they have the 
word "student" in their title so that's fine! Just bring along some 
student ID which shows that you're studying for either an undergraduate 
degree, a masters, a PHD or similar.

For someone who has completed their PHD, and are now a paid University 
researcher, the student discount won't be available, sorry. You'd need to 
ask your uni if they'll fund you, then book an early bird ticket. For next 
time, TAC (Travel Assistance Committee) is available to assist with the 
costs of registration / hotel / transport, and often helps with 
accademics. You've missed your chance to apply for ACEU, but for ApacheCon 
North America in Feb there's still time to apply.

Oh, and if you're involved in Apache OpenOffice, then talk to the PMC. 
They have some additional money to help with the costs for people who are 
involved in the project, but not eligable for any of the other discount 
programs which exist (i.e. not a student, not a speaker and not a 
committer)
