Grace Hopper Celebration of Computing scholarships open

From the Anita Borg Institute website:

The Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology announced today that scholarship applications are now being accepted for the 2012 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing Conference, which brings together women from all aspects of computer science and engineering. This years conference will be held October 3-6, 2012 in Baltimore, MD. The deadline for scholarship applications is May 15, 2012.

Full and partial scholarships to this years conference are made possible by industry sponsors, grants, and individual contributions. Full scholarships cover conference registration, lodging for four nights, and travel expense reimbursement. Partial scholarships are also available. While the largest portion of scholarships are awarded to undergraduate and graduate students, junior faculty and members of non-governmental organizations and non-profits are also eligible to apply.

Applications are only being accepted online. A scholarship committee consisting of women and men from industry and academia perform reviews of the applications and scores each one. Scholarships are awarded to the candidates with the highest scores from a diverse cross-section of schools and regions.

For more information, see the press release and the scholarship application page.
