In support of women engaging in the field of Information Technology, the University of Saint Joseph is proud to offer scholarships to students who enroll at USJ and have won, or were considered runners-up in all regions for the Award for Aspirations in Computing presented by NCWIT.
My name is Gili Rusak and I am a NCWIT New York: Upstate New York Community member. I am an Upstate New York winner and a National in Computing Runner Up. I am a student and I will be spending the summer in an internship in the CS department in Stanford. I am very excited! Since I am only 17 the university does not provide dorms for me. I would like to ask maybe your NCWIT network may help me. Maybe one of the girls can host me in her house or have a room for rent? Of course I can pay whatever is needed. Do you have any advice for me regarding housing in the Palo Alto area?
Women in Computer Science (WiCS) is a scholarship-based,residential, weeklong discovery of this fascinating field which is now an integral part of all aspects of our lives.
