Computer Science Student Opportunities

Conferences, fellowship, and training are very beneficial to students, here are some upcoming opportunities.

Last year I attended Great Minds in STEM HENAAC conference*, Out for Undergrad Tech Conference* (LGBT students), and Code 2040’s Tech Trek* (Black and Latinx students).

Most conferences have a scholarships to cover accommodations (hotel) or/and air travel. Look for these opportunities. I have indicated conferences with a * if they cover part or all of the expenses. In addition, your school probably a department(s) that might be able to sponsor, you just have to apply. If you have questions or need help with this you can contact me via twitter @IsmaelRGV.
