The National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) is now accepting applications for the Award for Aspirations in Computing as well as the Aspirations in Computing Educator Award.  

If you know a female high school student who is interested in technology and making college plans, please tell her about the Aspirations in Computing award. The key word for this award is “aspirations.”  Any girl who is interested in computing and technology is encouraged to apply. Applications are open until Nov. 7. A parent endorsement is required for each application.

Award recipients receive recognition at an award event, an engraved award for both her and her school, scholarship and internship opportunities, access to a peer network of technical young women in the NCWIT Aspirations in Computing Community (sponsored by Bloomberg), and various other prizes—computing resources, gadgets, sponsor swag and more.

The NCWIT Aspirations in Computing Educator Award (sponsored by AT&T) publicly celebrates high school educators who encourage girls’ interest and participation in technology pursuits. So beyond inviting your female students to apply for the Aspirations in Computing award, we also encourage YOU to apply for the Educator Award.
