Scholarships

Update: Scholarships have now been assigned and successful candidates notified.


The ACM-WE womENcourage Celebration of Women in Computing, with the generous support of sponsors, are proud to offer scholarships to a number of undergraduate and graduate students studying at a European university who present a paper, poster, panel, or workshop at womENcourage 2015. Additionally, a limited number of scholarships will be offered to students who have not had a paper, poster, panel, or workshop accepted for presentation, but who have demonstrable affinity with the Scholarship Objectives. The approximate award amounts will be €200, €350 and €500 dependent on the location of the student's university. The award is not intended to cover all costs. It simply provides significant assistance to attendees and is recognition of the applicants affinity to the objectives of womENcourage. Further sources of funding may be found in the Other Sources of Funding page.
