Winner of Grace Hopper Travel Grant – Neha Chachra!

I am happy to announce that CSE Ph.D. student Neha Chachra has won the first annual CNS Grace Hopper Travel Grant!

In Neha’s winning essay, she stated that the Grace Hopper conference is “a great venue for showcasing my research work, finding potential collaborators, being exposed to and inspired by new ideas…” as well as being ” a great avenue to engage prospective employers… The Grace Hopper Conference is synonymous with opportunities for women in computing at all stages of their careers. It will be a great opportunity to advance my career, and a great avenue to give back to the community.”

Congratulations to Neha!

The 2012 CNS Grace Hopper Travel Grant application will open in August 2012. If you have any questions, please contact Kathryn Krane (
