FACULTY: Do you need travel funds to send your female graduate student to a quality technical conference?

STUDENTS: Are you looking to expand your professional network, get experience with event organization and obtain travel funds to go to a premier conference?

N^2 Women (Networking Networking Women) announces the continued support of our N^2 Women Student Fellowships.  Funding for these fellowships has generously been provided by HP Labs, Microsoft Research, and SIGMOBILE.  These awards will partially cover a student's travel cost (up to $500) to a meeting where an N^2 Women event will be held. In exchange, the student must help organize the N^2 Women meeting. The benefit of doing the organization, in addition to the travel funds, is for the student to connect with the organizers of the conference who are, typically, leaders in the research field. We will arrange for a faculty or research member of N^2 Women to assist/mentor the student in this task.

To apply for a fellowship, please see:

Networking Networking Women (N^2 Women) is a discipline-specific community for researchers in the communications and networking research fields. The main goal of N^2 Women is to foster connections among the under-represented women in computer networking and related research fields. N^2 Women allows women to connect with other women who share the same research interests, who attend the same conferences, who face the same career hurdles, and who experience the same obstacles.  For more information or to join, please see:

N^2 Women is an ACM SIGMOBILE program that is supported by the IEEE Communications Society, Microsoft Research and HP Labs.
