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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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)
- 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.
