Female students: Grace Hopper Celebration scholarships!

GHC Scholarship Grants enable students and faculty, who would not otherwise have the opportunity, to attend the Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC). At GHC you can connect with other women in computing and innovative organizations, hear stories from peers and experts in computing, and get quality career advice specific to your needs.

Undergraduate, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows from around the world are encouraged to apply. The GHC Scholarship Grants for students typically cover all expenses for attending the conferencing including conference registration, meals, lodging, and fixed amount of travel reimbursement funds. GHC Scholarship grants for students are made possible by industry sponsors, a generous grant from the National Science Foundation, and individual donations.

Faculty, at all levels, are also encouraged to apply. The GHC Scholarship for faculty covers conference registration only. Faculty scholarships are made possible by the Anita Borg Institute.

If selected for the scholarship, Scholars will be in Houston, TX October 18-21, 2016. Special events for our scholars begin the evening of October 18, with the general conference starting the morning of October 19. Plan to fly home on Saturday following GHC (October 22) as you won’t want to miss the Friday Event Celebration!

All students and faculty need to apply in order to be eligible for a scholarship. Students include undergraduates, graduates and post-doctoral researchers. Faculty scholarships are reserved for those actively teaching CS in an accredited institution of higher education.
