NCWIT Aspirations in Computing (AiC) Needs Volunteer Application Reviewers Like You

Do you want to be inspired by the next generation of technologists? NCWIT is looking for volunteer reviewers for three separate AiC awards this 2018-19 season. Most of our applications do not require a technical background to review and it's a great way to support NCWIT and the community of women in tech in your local region!

(Download this information as a PDF.)

  • On average, volunteers spend three hours reviewing, depending on the type of application and a reviewer’s speed. 
  • Applications are read and scored online; detailed instructions are provided.
  • Applications are assigned on a self-service basis, so volunteers can complete as many as they have time to do. (We ask that all reviewers complete a minimum of ten applications in one category. There is no maximum!)
