2014 Agenda


Eligibility

  • Women students in their first, second or third year of graduate school in computer science and engineering or a closely related field, who are studying at a US or Canadian institution.

The application period for the 2014 CRA-Women Graduate Cohort Workshop is now closed. We will begin making participant selections around the end of January and will be extending invitations to those selected.  All applicants will be notified at the email provided in their application by mid-February.  We thank you for your patience.

The CRA-W Grad Cohort program, initiated in 2004, is generously funded by sponsors from industry, academia, and the computing community. Grad Cohort aims to increase the ranks of senior women in computing by building and mentoring nationwide communities of women through their graduate studies.

At the Grad Cohort Workshop, we will welcome new women graduate students in their first year of graduate school into the community of computing researchers and professionals by providing them with a broad range of strategies and role models. Strategies and mentoring for students in their second and third years of graduate school will also be provided.  Students will meet for two days with 20 to 25 senior computing researchers and professionals, who will share pertinent information on graduate school survival skills, as well as more personal information and insights about their experiences. The rewards of a research career will be emphasized. The workshop will include a mix of formal presentations and informal discussions and social events. Through this workshop, students will be able to build mentoring relationships and develop peer networks that will form the basis for ongoing activities during their graduate careers.


Travel expenses, meals, and lodging will be provided for students chosen to participate in this program.
