Posted on 2018-04-20

Six Computer Science PhD students were accepted to the 2018 CRA-Women Grad Cohort Workshop.


Congratulations to Eiman Aldhahri, Laqin Fan, Zannatul Firdous, Sambriddhi Mainali, Diem-Trang Pham, and Alina Zaman, who attended the workshop on April 13-14 in San Francisco.  CRA fully funded two of the students and partially funded the remaining four.

The CRA-Women Grad Cohort aims to increase the ranks of senior women in computing-related studies and research by building and mentoring nationwide communities of women through their graduate studies.

After the workshop, Zannatul Firdous (pictured below) commented, "I learned a lot by talking to others in computing... I have found how I should proceed to improve myself in research."
