NCWIT’s Regional Initiatives bundle research-backed programs and practices to increase the local participation of women and girls in tech fields and careers. To understand local computing ecosystems, and cater content and programming to needs on the ground, NCWIT partners with community stakeholders to build awareness, inspire participation, and connect women to like-minded peers, role models, and opportunities.
The NCWIT Academic Alliance Seed Fund awards NCWIT Academic Alliance (AA) members at non-profit, U.S. institutions (including U.S. territories) with funds (up to $20,000 per project) to develop and implement initiatives for recruiting or retaining women in computing. To date, 71 member organizations have received a total of $815,450 to spark or grow their initiatives. A huge thanks to Microsoft Research for their support of the Seed Fund.
Congratulations to the 2021 Academic Alliance Seed Fund recipients!
