Grants & Awards
To support our aims, WICS has funding available for female students and staff to attend conferences. There are also grants available from external bodies which the Department can support. We've identified some here which we think are particularly interesting.
If you are interested, please contact JJ Giwa-Majekodunmi 020 3108 7001. We will support your application, fund some or all of the travel and accommodation expenses. In return we would like feedback on your experience, what you learned. You should be coming back full of ideas to motivate your peers and telling us of new ways in which we can achieve our aims!

If the award is for one of the ACM Special Interest Group (SIG-) complementary registration and a mentor are provided during the conference.
Scholarships applications are evaluated 6 times a year, and typically you need to apply 2-3 months in advance of the conference you wish to attend.
