Florida A&M looking for black women interested in computer science

Florida A&M University is looking for black female students interested in the field of computer technology for the fall of 2009.  Seeing a shortage of black women in the computer science field, Florida A&M wants to address this situation by offering scholarships, support and interest in graduate school as well.  The school recently received a grant titled African American Women in Computer Science. According to the Westside Gazette:

The grant provides scholarships from $4000 to $10,000 per year for female African American students.

We need your help to get the word out about this great opportunity to build back up the enrollment of women in the CIS Department.

This information should be passed along to high school or community college students, their parents, and to guidance counselors you may know.

For additional information about this grant check out the African American Women in Computer Science (AAWCS) website. As the website states:

While African-American women are the focus group for the program, the program will not be limited to African-Americans, but will seek to service all groups of women enrolled in CS or IT.
