To increase the diversity of participation of women across the globe, WiDS Zurich is excited to offer a limited set of travel grants. These grants are made possible through the generosity of our partner sponsors. We invite applications from women who have a direct interest in data science and are committed to using technology to make a positive impact on society. Applications are open to emerging scholars/junior faculty members, doctoral students, and early career professionals. Priority will be given to those attending WiDS for the first time and are living in developing/transitional countries.

Applications will open mid-January 2019.

Applications should include your CV and a short (no more than 1 page) statement of interest that covers the following components:

• A brief description of how you are uniquely contributing to your community through the use of data and technology.

• An explanation of your financial need and declaration that you will use the funds for conference travel purposes.

• A description of how you hope to benefit from conference attendance.

We look forward to receiving your applications!
