WICS Award 2017

On behalf of the USF Women in Computer Science Club, we would like to thank National Center for Women in Technology and Google.org for granting WICS the seed award of $5,000.

With this generous award, WICS plans to host a collaborative hackathon bringing together computer science students from USF and other universities located throughout the Bay Area in order to promote collective and diverse project building.

Additionally, we will allocate some of this funding to invest in incentives for club members in order to improve WICS retention and participation rates to continue building strong relations with one another in our community.

We are very excited to continue growing as a club with the support of NCWIT and Google.org.
