Over at Diane Curtis’ blog I read about the upcoming Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing conference. Specifically Diane points out that there are scholarships available for women who are undergraduate or graduate students to attend the conference. What is the conference?
The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing 2007 is the seventh in a series of conferences designed to bring the research and career interests of women in computing to the forefront. Presenters are leaders in their respective fields, representing industrial, academic and government communities. Leading researchers present their current work, while special sessions focus on the role of women in today’s technology fields, including computer science, information technology, research and engineering.
Past Grace Hopper Celebrations have resulted in collaborative proposals, networking, mentoring, and increased visibility for the contributions of women in computing. This year’s theme is “I Invent the Future”.
This is probably the biggest and best opportunity of the year for women in computer science to network and to support each other. So if you know a college women in computer science let them know about the scholarship availability. Do it quickly though as the application deadline is June 11th.
