ACM-W, with funding from Wipro Technologies, provides support for women undergraduate and graduate students in Computer Science and related programs who wish to attend research conferences. Exposure to the CS research world can be an important factor in encouraging a student to continue on to the next level (Undergraduate to Graduate, Masters to Ph.D., Ph.D. to an industry or academic position). The student does not have to present a paper at the conference she attends. As of 2011, twenty ACM-W/Wipro scholarships will be funded annually: ten scholarships of up to $600 will be awarded for intra-continental conference travel, and ten scholarships of up to $1200 will be awarded for intercontinental conference travel.
