Celebration of Women in Computing (GHC), which is the largest conference
for technical women in the world! Keep reading for info about possible
help with funding your trip.
The conference will be held October 2-5, 2013, in Minneapolis,
MN. Students who attended this conference last year in Baltimore had
great things to say:
"Grace Hopper was a totally exceptional experience. I had the opportunity for three on-site interviews, which offered great practice with technical interviews." -- Emily Scheerer, Computer Science
"It was great meeting a bunch of new people from all around the country at the conference as well as networking with many of the biggest names in technology,
like Facebook, Twitter, Apple, and Microsoft. I know getting to meet
these recruiters in person was a huge opportunity and I am very optimistic in my chances of getting an internship on the west coast, which is one of my dreams." -- Alec Pulianas, Computer Engineering
The Center for Women in Technology (CWIT) is looking for ways
to help fund students' expenses to attend this conference. If you are
interested in attending and would like to be considered for funding,
please contact Cindy Greenwood in CWIT at firstname.lastname@example.org and you will receive more
information as it becomes available. We cannot guarantee that any funds
will be available, but we will do our best to help students attend.
