Alfred posted about the Award for Aspirations in Computing from NCWIT recently (if you don’t subscribe to his blog, you should). I’m so glad he did, because it’s a great reminder that the application process opens in about 3 weeks!
The NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing honors young women active and interested in computing and technology. We are looking for next generation of technical talent. Award winners receive cool prizes, gadgets, scholarships and all girls can join a community of fellow technically-inclined young women.
I was lucky enough to meet two award winners at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing last year and they were so inspiring! This award can be really beneficial; both of them had internships lined up for the summer!
To stay up-to-date on the award, make sure to like it on Facebook. (Applications will be accepted between 9/15-10/31.)
