2018 CRA Underrepresented Minorities (URM) Grad Cohort Workshop
At the CRA URM Grad Cohort Workshop, you will spend two days interacting with senior computing researchers and professionals, who will share pertinent information on graduate school survival skills, as well as more personal information and insights about their experiences. The workshop will include a mix of formal presentations and informal discussions and social events. By attending URM Grad Cohort you will be able to build mentoring relationships and develop peer networks that will form the basis for ongoing activities during your graduate career and beyond.
The inaugural CRA URM Grad Cohort Workshop will take place March 16-17, 2018 with the generous support of sponsors from industry, the National Science Foundation, the Computing Research Association and the Association for Computing Machinery. The CRA URM Grad Cohort Workshop aims to increase the ranks of senior underrepresented minorities and persons with disabilities in computing research by building and mentoring nationwide communities through their graduate studies.
We are currently accepting sponsorship for the 2018 URM Grad Cohort Workshop. We welcome sponsorship at any level and would be happy to provide recognition in all printed and web materials.
