Apply for a scholarship to attend the Grace Hopper 2010 Conference!

In case you missed the press release, applications are now open for the 2010 Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC). GHC scholarships cover a combination of registration, meals, lodging and a fixed amount of travel expenses. The deadline to apply for a scholarship to attend this year's conference is May 14th.

Here are a few things you may not know about GHC scholarships.
  • Last year, 311 Grace Hopper 2009 participants attended on scholarships.
  • Students are not the only participants who can receive GHC scholarships: Junior faculty and employees of nonprofits and NGOs are also eligible to apply.
  • Participating in the conference will increase your chances of getting a scholarship. Since some of the program submission deadlines have been extended, take this opportunity to submit a proposal. Deadlines are March 30th for PhD Forum and New Investigators; April 6th for Technical Poster.

I think this website is great for women interested in computer science. I am currently enrolled in a women and computing class and we see there is a shortage of women in the field. We also talk about what would take for women to become interested in the field. More Scholarships is one solutions we came up with to encourage women to go and stay in the field of computer science.
