2019 Anita Borg Systers Pass It On Awards Program

Deadline: March 21, 2019.

The Anita Borg Systers Pass It On Awards Program honors Anita Borg’s desire to create a network of  women technologists helping each other. The cash award helps fund women in computing or projects that inspire and support girls and women to enter computing. We encourage recipients to “pass on” the benefits they gain from the award, creating a movement of women helping women.

These awards are funded by generous donations from Systers, our online community founded by Anita Borg in 1987, and other members of the community.
