NCWIT Aspirations in Computing
The National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) Aspirations in Computing (AiC) provides a long-term community for female technologists, from K-12 through higher education and beyond, encouraging persistence in computing through continuous engagement and ongoing encouragement at each pivotal stage of their educational and professional development.
Do you know a high school female with a passion for technology and computing? Or maybe you know an educator who encourages high school women’s interest and participation in technology pursuits? The National Center for Women & Information Technology and Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University holds applications for the following awards each year:
The NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing builds a talent pool for the growing technical workforce and helps academic and corporate organizations celebrate diversity in computing by honoring young women at the high-school level for their computing-related achievements and interests. Award recipients are selected based on their aptitude and aspirations in technology and computing; leadership ability; academic history; and plans for post-secondary education.
The Aspirations in Computing Educator Award identifies outstanding educators who play a pivotal role in encouraging young women to explore their interest in computing and technology, and recognizes these educators for their efforts to promote gender equity in computing.
Applicants, save the date! Once applications are received and reviewed, awards will be determined and honorees will be invited to the NCWIT Aspirations in Computing Awards Banquet.
