Reminder: Grace Hopper Celebration scholarship applications due May 31

Edit: The deadline has been extended to May 31st.

Just a quick reminder for the students here: scholarship applications to attend the 2011 Grace Hopper Celebration are due May 31st, so you’ve got a bit less than a week to get them done! Scholarships can cover conference registration, hotel and travel.

The Celebration is being held on November 9-12, 2011 in Portland, Oregon. It is a totally awesome conference filled with amazing technical women, and I highly recommend it all women in technical fields. (Men are also welcome to attend, and I’ve heard many positive things about the experience from them as well!)

For the scholarship, don’t forget that you’ll need a letter of support from a faculty member, so make sure you go out and ask for that now so they have time to write it before the deadline! You’ll also need an updated resume and a 500 word essay, so the sooner you start the better.

My friend Leslie recently gave a presentation on the scholarship application process that I’m embedding below so you know what to expect:

Good luck! Conference registration for non-students opens June 1st.
