2014 CRA-W Graduate Cohort Workshop Applications now online!
April 11-12, 2014
Location: Santa Clara, CA
Hyatt Regency Santa Clara
Women students in their first, second, or third year of graduate school in computer science and computer engineering or a closely related field at a US or Canadian institution.
CRA-Women is announcing the formation of the 2014 Graduate Cohort for Women. Cohort activities will kick off with a workshop April 11-12, 2014 in Santa Clara, CA. This workshop is the cornerstone of CRA-W's efforts to increase the ranks of senior women in computing by building and mentoring nationwide communities of women during their graduate studies. The Grad Cohort Workshop 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.
All of the students will meet for two days with ~20 senior computing researchers and professionals who will share pertinent information on graduate school survival skills, as well as more personal information and insights into their experiences. The rewards of a research career will be emphasized. This workshop will include a mix of formal presentations and informal discussions and social events. Through the 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. Also, participants will be able to network with our generous sponsors to learn about career and internship opportunities they have available.
