ACM-W Networking Award CFP – Extended!

We are extending the deadline for the first round of this academic year’s proposals! Please see the details below and get in your awesome ideas!

ACM-W is accepting applications for funding ($300 maximum award) that will support existing ACM-W Chapters, who wish to hold joint events with schools that do not have ACM-W Chapters, events between newly formed and established ACM-W chapters, or between ACM-W chapters at schools with significant population differences. The event can be held at any of the participant schools’ campuses. Our on-line application will request the following information:

1) Names of the schools involved in the project
2) Names of the organizers
3) Description of the event
4) Number of people at the host school who will be reached by the event
5) Expected impact on the school(s) that do(es) not yet have an ACM-W chapter
6) What sparked your wish to help/collaborate with this/these particular sister school(s)?
7) Why does your school not have funding for the event; or, if it does have funding, why may that funding not be used for the projected event?
8) Payee
9) Address for the check or transfer (international)
