Scholarships, Grants, and Fellowship Awards

We’ve Got You Covered

We’re here to help you make the most out of your time in Colorado. From scholarships to grants to fellowship awards, see below for ways we can support your attendance at WiCyS 2021.

Woman

Student Scholarship

We have a limited capacity of attendees for WiCyS 2021. As always, we expect that 50% of the attendees will be students from High School, 2 and 4-year institutions at all levels of education, and 50% professionals at various levels of their careers.

Students MUST apply for WiCyS scholarships to attend the conference (there is no general WiCyS 2021 registration for students) and have to be a current WiCyS student member to apply.

All students must apply for registration assistance (includes reduced rate registration that includes all activities and meals). Students receiving the scholarship will pay a minimal $40 registration processing fee instead of the conference registration cost of $450. Optionally, students can request a lodging scholarship (two nights of complimentary shared lodging—September 8 and 9) and/or travel stipend ($500).

  • Put thought and consideration into the essay questions
  • For students, select a faculty reference who knows you and knows you’re applying for this scholarship. Please follow up with your faculty reference to confirm they received this request.
  • All students must apply for a conference scholarship to attend WiCyS 2021. There is no bypass through general registration (the only other option is for your school to be a sponsor).
