Anita Borg Institute Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing Scholarships 2017 (Funded to Attend GHC Conference 2017, USA)

Application Deadline: March 8, 2017

Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing Scholarships (GHC) is a great opportunity to connect with other women in computing and innovative organizations, hear stories from peers and experts, and get quality career advice specific to your needs.

Scholarship Details
Student and Faculty Scholarships include:

  • Individual Registration for the three day conference
  • Hotel accommodations (Student Scholars will be assigned a roommate. Faculty Scholars will be assigned their own room)
  • Meal card for use at the convention center during the conference
  • Travel stipend (if used wisely, stipend will cover airfare, transportation costs to and from the airport, baggage fees, meals during travel, and other travel incidentals)
    GHC provide the stipend after your attendance at the conference has been verified.
  • Scholars pay upfront for flights/meals and then receive the stipend in December.
    Student Eligibility
  • You must be a full time student enrolled in an accredited degree program at a college or university at the time of the conference (October 2017). Those graduating prior to the conference are not eligible unless accepted to another related degree program (such as a M.S. or Ph.D. program).
  • Show satisfactory progress toward a degree such as, but not limited to, computer science, computer engineering, or a related technical discipline such as electrical engineering, math, or physics.
  • Be able to demonstrate an interest in computer science.
  • You cannot have been an ABI-GHC Scholarship recipient in 2016.
  • You must be at least 18 years of age by October 1, 2017.
    You cannot accept more than one scholarship to GHC.

Faculty Eligibility

  • You must be teaching at an accredited college or university at the time of the conference. We do not award scholarships to High School teachers, as the conference does not provide programming for K-12.
  • You must teach in a degree program such as, but not limited to, computer science, computer engineering, or a related technical discipline such as electrical engineering, math, or physics.
  • If you receive a scholarship and do not notify ABI that you cannot attend prior to the conference, you will not be eligible in future years as this takes a scholarship away from another faculty that could have attended.

The faculty scholar?

  • Faculty scholars mentor female students.
  • Scholars are active in computing community, providing support to computing clubs and/or organizations.
  • GHC will have an impact on the scholar and the message they take back to school.
