Systers Spring 2013 Pass-It-On Awards: applications open, apply by April 10

The Anita Borg Systers Pass-It-On (PIO) Awards honor Anita Borg’s desire to create a network of technical women helping one another. The cash awards, funded exclusively by donations from the Systers Online Community, are intended as means for women established in technological fields to support women seeking their place in the fields of technology. The program is called “Pass-It-On” because it comes with the moral obligation to “pass on” the benefits gained from the award.

Women of all ages (over 18), nationalities, and backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
