AccessComputing is a National Science Foundation project that works to increase the participation of people with disabilities in computing education and careers. AccessComputing is planning a research workshop in early 2021 for undergraduates with disabilities interested in computer science research.
OurCS@AccessComputing+CREATE is a research-focused workshop for undergraduates with disabilities in computing fields to be held virtually on Wednesday, January 13 through Friday, January 15, 2021, 9 am – 12 pm Pacific Standard Time (PST).
Students with disabilities nationwide in computing fields are eligible to apply. Students will participate in research explorations designed to inspire participants to consider research careers and meet mentors with disabilities.
Students who participate in the entire program will receive a $50 stipend. Funding for this workshop is provided by Google Explore CSR with additional support from AccessComputing and the Center for Research and Education on Accessible Technology and Experiences at UW (CREATE).
