Women Transform Technology!

Grace Hopper Conference scholarships provide funds for undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty to attend the three-day celebration. In 2017, over 650 Scholars attended GHC where they gained access to career and academic workshops, networking opportunities, and memories that will last a lifetime. Learn more about our GHC Scholarship program below, or contact anna.m.viggiano@gmail.com if you have further questions.  Application deadline March 7, 2018.

The next GHC will be September 26-28, 2018 in Houston, TX.  To learn more about the GHC and see blogs from last year’s event, go to:  https://ghc.anitab.org/news/commentary-perspectives/

Student Scholarships include:

  • Individual Registration for the three day celebration
  • Hotel accommodations (arranged by AAUW Honolulu Branch). Student Scholars will be assigned a roommate.
  • Airfare booked and paid for by AAUW Honolulu Branch.
  • Travel stipend (if used wisely, stipend will cover transportation costs to and from the airport, baggage fees, and meals during travel)

Student Eligibility

  • You must be a full-time student enrolled in an accredited degree program at a college or university at the time of the celebration (September 2018). Those graduating prior to the celebration are not eligible unless accepted to another related degree program (such as a M.S. or Ph.D. program).
  • Show satisfactory progress toward a degree such as, but not limited to, computer science, computer engineering, or a related technical discipline such as electrical engineering, human-computer interaction, math, physics, or management information systems.
  • Be able to demonstrate an interest in computing.
  • You must be at least 18 years of age by September 24, 2018.
  • You cannot accept more than one scholarship to attend GHC.
  • If you receive a scholarship and do not notify AAUW Branch that you cannot attend prior to the celebration, you will not be eligible in future years as this takes a scholarship away from another student that could have attended.

What are we looking for in a student scholar?

  • Student scholars are active in their community.
  • GHC will have an impact on the scholar and the message they take back to school and their community.
  • Post Conference: Successful award recipients will be encouraged to make a presentation related to their conference experience at an AAUW Honolulu Branch membership meeting or activity.
  • Each of the following 4 questions should be answered in 300 words or less. We highly recommend you complete the answers offline where you can easily edit and save your work. When you are satisfied with your answers, you can copy/paste into the application.

    A letter of recommendation provided by an educator on your behalf should be emailed directly from the person writing the letter to aauwhonolulucc@gmail.com. Applicants are responsible for ensuring letters are submitted by the deadline.
