Congratulations to our CI Computer Girls !!!
CI Computer Girls has been announced as a winner of Fall 2014 (Round 9) Student Seed Fund award from the National Center of Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) sponsored by Symantec. We are very proud to join the Previous Winners in an effort to promote, retain, and support women in Computer Science and IT programs.
As a winner, CI Computer Girls will receive a grant that will fund hosting a programming boot-camp with two-fold objectives:
- to ease introduction of female students to the world of computing, foster the feeling of comfort and belonging to a supportive group of peers from day one,
- to gain new knowledge while at the same time practicing leadership skills and building self-confidence.
Watch out for the official announcement here.
We would like to thank both NCWIT and Symantec for their ongoing support and the very special and generous award!
