CRA has several ways for leaders in the computing community to be recognized. CRA is currently accepting nominations for three award programs and its Board of Directors.

The deadline for receipt of nominations is December 11, 2015 by midnight (EST).
Nico Habermann Award
CRA makes an award to a person who has made outstanding contributions aimed at increasing the numbers and/or successes of underrepresented groups in the computing research community. This award recognizes work in areas of government affairs, educational programs, professional societies, public awareness, and leadership that has a major impact on advancing these groups in the computing research community. Recognized contributions can be focused directly at the research level or at its immediate precursors, namely students at the undergraduate or graduate levels. The deadline for receipt of nominations is December 11, 2015 by midnight (EST).
CRA is pleased to announce a new award program that honors faculty members in computing who have made a significant impact on students they have mentored. The award recognizes faculty members who have provided exceptional mentorship and undergraduate research experiences, and, in parallel, guidance on admission and matriculation of these students to research-focused graduate programs in computing.
Eligible nominees are full-time faculty members at North American academic institutions. Faculty members include tenured and tenure-track faculty, instructors, and professors of the practice. Nominations are due Monday, November 30, 2015 by midnight (EST).
