The NCWIT Collegiate Award

Calling all college women whose technical projects demonstrate a high level of creativity and potential societal impact! Applications are now open for the NCWIT Collegiate Award. Up to six Collegiate Award winners will receive a $10,000 cash award, an engraved trophy, and a trip to the annual NCWIT Summit on Women and IT for recognition at an awards ceremony and an opportunity to network with Collegiate Award Sponsors at a private reception.

“I know I could not have had such a fulfilling college career without the help and mentoring that NCWIT provides through this program. Because of my success, I think that it is essential to provide mentorship to women in these fields in order to build a society where women are comfortable choosing technical careers because they know programs like Aspirations in Computing will back them.” ~ NCWIT Aspirations in Computing Community Member
