Award Applications for High School Women in Computing

NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing

Applications open for the NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing on September 15, and any U.S. high school woman with computing aspirations is eligible to apply. This multi-tiered award includes recognition at the national level (sponsored by Bank of America) and at the local level (sponsored by Microsoft).

Each award recipient receives recognition at an award event, scholarship and internship opportunities, access to a national network of technical young women, and other various prizes — computing resources, gadgets, sponsor swag, engraved awards and certificates, and more. Additionally, National Award recipients receive $500, a laptop, and a trip to attend the Bank of America Technology Showcase and Awards Ceremony on March 7, 2015.

Did you know that educators play a significant role in connecting young women to this award? More than 65% of applicants report learning about the Aspirations Award from a teacher or other educator. Tell young women to get started by registering online. For detailed application information, please take a look at the how-to guide and FAQ webpage.
