The Tapia Conference provides scholarships for students (undergraduate/graduate), post-docs and a limited number for faculty. Scholarships include conference registration, meals during the conference, hotel accommodations, and a reimbursable travel stipend. Tapia scholarships are generously funded by government and industry organizations.
To support the Conference goals of celebrating diversity in computing, scholarships will be reviewed and evaluated by the Scholarship Committee according to three, main criteria:
- whether the applicant is a member of an underrepresented group,
- overall strength of the application and written essay,
- applicant’s level of accomplishment in computer science.
The Scholarship Committee realizes that an applicant’s level of accomplishment in computer science will vary for different students, particularly graduate and undergraduate students; however, a commitment to pursuing a career in computer science is an important part of the Tapia Conference experience. As examples, grades, level research experience, and recommendation letters may each play a different role in indicating an applicant’s interest in growing in the discipline. Deadline to Submit Applications: Monday, February, 22, 2016
