Announcement - Applications due March 30: Anita Borg Systers “Pass it on” grants


These grants are called “Pass-It-On” grants because they come with the moral obligation to “pass on” the benefits gained from the grant. They are intended as means for women established in technological fields to support women seeking their place in the fields of technology.
