Reminder: Grace Hopper Celebration scholarship applications due May 31st

Edit: The deadline has been extended to May 31st.

Just a quick reminder: scholarship applications to attend the 2011 Grace Hopper Celebration are due May 31st, so you've got a bit less than a week to get them done!

The Celebration is being held on November 9-12, 2011 in Portland, Oregon. CUWISE has limited funds to help with travel expenses, so if you're interested in going this year please apply for a scholarship so that more CUWISE members can afford to go!

Don't forget that you'll need a letter of support from a faculty member, so make sure you go out and ask for that now so they have time to write it before the deadline! You'll also need an updated resume and a 500 word essay, so the sooner you start the better.

My friend Leslie recently gave a presentation on the scholarship application process that I'm embedding below so you know what to expect:

Good luck!

Good news! I just saw on Twitter that the application deadline has been extended until May 31! So if you have been considering attending, be sure to get in that application. We aren't yet sure what our funding will be this year so it's more important than ever. ;)
