N2Women Young Researcher Fellowships

N2Women is pleased to announce the continuation of our N2 Women Young Researcher Fellowship awards. N2Women considers you a young researcher if you are currently a student, working as a post-doc, or in the 1st or 2nd year of your new research career. These awards will partially cover a young researcher’s travel cost (up to $1000) to a meeting where an N2Women event will be held. In exchange, the young researcher must help organize the N2Women meeting. The benefit of doing the organization, in addition to the travel funds, is for the young researcher to connect with the organizers of the conference who are, typically, leaders in the research field. We will arrange for a faculty or research member of N2Women to assist/mentor the young researcher in this task.

Support for these N2Women Young Researcher Fellowship awards has been generously provided by ACM SIGMOBILE, ACM SIGCOMMIEEE Communications Society, and IEEE Computer Society (CS) Technical Committee on Computer Communications (TCCC).

To apply for a Young Researcher Fellowship, please answer all questions in the following online application form:  N2Women Fellowship Online Application Form. If you need to change previously entered information or you want to withdraw an application, please contact the fellowship chairs at n2women-fellowships@acm.org. Please contact the chairs at this email address also in case of any questions or inquiries. Please consult this document for the tips on writing the best possible N2 Women Fellowship application. This document was put together by the 2016 ACM UbiComp Fellow Juhi Ranjan.

We are particularly interested in young researchers who would like to organize N2 Women events for the following conferences:

Conference Sponsor
NSDI Facebook
SECON see the Note
SIGCOMM Facebook
PIMRC see the Note
IMC Facebook
Globecom IEEE ComSoc

Note – “We don’t have secured funding for 2020 yet. We are currently working on it.”

The deadline for applying is always ***1 week (7 days) after the full paper acceptance notification*** of the relevant conference. Please note that we consider the **actual** notification date, when the notification emails were sent out (which is, perhaps, not the announced date on the conference website). Conference X has a published notification date of February 1st, but the notification emails are actually sent on February 3rd, 3 pm CET. The deadline for applying for an N2Women fellowship is February 10th, 11:59 pm, anywhere on Earth.

Acceptance notification is 2 weeks after the application deadline. If you are chosen as the N2Women Fellow, see our easy step-by-step plan on how to organize an N2 Women meeting here.

Applications for conferences other than the above listed on the webpage are also welcome, with the same deadline calculation.

Please pass this information along to all female graduate students and young researchers who may be interested!
