How to Become an AspireIT Partner Organization and Start a Program

  • First and foremost, AspireIT Partner Organizations must be an NCWIT Alliance member organization.

    • If you represent a college or university, search the Academic Alliance membership directory. If your institution is listed, then it is an NCWIT Alliance member.

    • If you represent a national youth-serving organization or school for K-12 girls, search the K-12 Alliance membership directory. If your institution is listed, then it is an NCWIT Alliance member.

    • If you represent an organization or school serving a local or regional audience of girls in grades K through 12, search the K-12 Alliance Associate membership directory to see if your institute is listed. If your institution is listed, then it is an NCWIT Alliance Associate member.
