Programs have included technology-related learning and advancement opportunities, including programming workshops, peer mentoring and support, professional training, after-school programs, and more. The Student Seed Fund now offers multi-tiered awards to better support the needs of Women in Computing (WiC) groups at different stages of development and varied institutional sizes.
