The objective of the GHC Returning Scholars program is to increase the number of women in research-focused careers.
The program provides talks, mentors, and role models for industry professionals interested in a research-focused career change.
Professionals in the computing industry are constantly learning, growing, and refocusing. This program meets industry professionals where many of them gather — at GHC — to provide programming and mentoring for those interested in returning to graduate school and to research.
CRA-W will present talks, such as “I’m a Student Again: Heading to Graduate School after a Break”, that are open to all GHC attendees, as well as mentoring circles on topics such as “How to Successfully Apply to Graduate School.”
Additionally, this program includes a lunchtime mentoring event, where industry professionals can connect with mentors.
This program is open to those who have already completed their Bachelor’s degrees and are interested in returning to graduate school.
