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.
