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.
