ACM-W Scholarships for Attendance at Research Conferences

To apply for the ACM-W scholarship visit the ACM-W site here

ACM-W supports, celebrates, and advocates internationally for the full engagement of women in all aspects of the computing field, providing a wide range of programs and services to ACM members and working in the larger community to advance the contributions of technical women.

ACM-W provides support for women undergraduate and graduate students in Computer Science and related programs to attend research conferences. This exposure to the technical research world can encourage a student to continue on to the next level (Undergraduate to Graduate, Masters to Ph.D., Ph.D. to an industry or academic position). The student does not have to present a paper at the conference she attends.

To apply, you will need to submit the following:

  1. your information,
  2. details of the conference you want to attend,
  3. a statement of why you want to attend the conference and what you hope to gain from doing so, and
  4. a support letter from your advisor.

Applications are due Aug 15 for the SIGDOC 2019 conference
