Applications Open for Systers Pass-It-On Awards

Applications for the spring 2009 Anita Borg Systers Pass-It-On (PIO)

award cycle opened on June 20 and close on November 4, 2009. PIO

applications are open to women in any country who are over 18 years

old and in or aspiring to be in the field of computing. Applications

are encouraged for both individual needs such as education, job

transfers and other life transitions; and group projects designed to

train, mentor or inspire girls and women interested in computing

technology. On the PIO

web page

you'll find complete information including application guidelines and

a poster you can use to help spread the word.

Please note that in the past, some applicants have had difficulty

ensuring that a letter of recommendation is submitted on their behalf.

A recommendation letter is required, so please take care to ensure

that one is submitted.

Thank you in advance for your help in spreading the word about our

awards program. If there is something that Systers could do to

reciprocate, please let me know.
