About the Company:
National Science Foundation
The number of jobs in our country requiring substantial STEM expertise has grown nearly 34 percent over the past decade and employers say they are having trouble filling jobs in occupations that depend on skilled technical workers. Returning women and women veterans are a pool of talented individuals who can fill STEM jobs nationwide. The NSF RESET 2021 conference will support the re-entry of women and women veterans in STEM, especially in Emerging Technology (EmTech) fields, such as cybersecurity, data science, mobile development, and cloud computing.
The goal of this conference is to explore and discuss challenges encountered by returning women with the objective of better understanding their situations and identifying solutions to their problems in accessing EmTech education and employment. In addition to the many women students who will participate in the conference, there will also be presenters and invited participants from industry, NSF INCLUDES Alliances, social science and policy fields, and from support organizations, such as university veteran’s affairs and academic services offices at universities.
The NSF RESET conference will award scholarships to deserving women students from any domain within computing and emerging technology area. Students who get selected as scholars will gain access to the entire conference, various hands-on workshops, panels, poster sessions and networking opportunities for free.
You will be provided a $400 stipend/scholarship to attend 4 days of the conference. You can pre-register for the sessions you want to attend.
