I am very excited to announce that I have received the GHC Student Scholarship to attend the 2018 Grace Hopper Celebration in Houston, Texas! I am very honored and am looking forward to meeting many amazing women this September. The scholarship is described as:
AnitaB.org finds sponsors to award hundreds of student and faculty scholarships to attend the Grace Hopper Celebration. This once in a lifetime chance, allows academics to connect with other women in computing, hear stories from peers and experts in computing, and get quality career advice specific to their needs needs. The application process is very competitive.
This year’s GHC is expecting 20,000 attendees. That’s a lot of kick-ass people in one space. With events like their Expos and Mentoring Circles, there will be a lot to do.
Stay tuned as I figure out more about my schedule and plans for the celebration!
