The Department of Computer Science at the University of Alabama is proud to host the Award for Aspirations in Computing in Northern Alabama. The NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing builds a talent pool for the growing technical workforce and helps celebrate diversity in computing by honoring young women for their computing-related achievements and interests. Award recipients are selected based on their aptitude and aspirations in technology and computing; leadership ability; academic history; and plans for post-secondary education. The Aspirations in Computing Educator Award identifies outstanding educators who play a pivotal role in encouraging young women to explore their interest in computing and technology, and recognizes these educators for their efforts to promote gender equity in computing. Each Fall, award recipients are selected for their aptitude and interest in IT and computing, solid leadership ability, good academic history, and plans for post-secondary education. Awardees are invited to a banquet dinner each Spring with their parents and teachers.
