Facebook is committed to advancing women in technology, and this fall thousands of remarkable women in technology are invited to Orlando, Florida from 30 September – 4 October, 2019 for our twelfth year at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing. This unique scholarship program will be awarded to 50 women excelling in Computer Science. Each recipient will have the opportunity not only to attend the Celebration, but to spend valuable days before the conference with Facebook engineers learning, collaborating, and preparing for the conference. The deadline is on 28 June 2019.
The scholarship includes paid registration for the Grace Hopper Celebration, covered travel and lodging, additional meal stipend, and an access to tech talks, mentoring and networking events.
- The scholarship is open to all women currently enrolled in a 4-year undergraduate or graduate degree-seeking university program, majoring in Computer Science or a related field (i.e. Computer Engineering, Math, Statistics, Information systems).
For international applicants: If you are selected, you would be responsible for your own travel visa. Facebook will cover travel expenses.
All your donations will be used to pay the magazine’s journalists and to support the ongoing costs of maintaining the site.
