  • Congratulations to Lovelace, who has been awarded a $3000 grant from the National Center for Women in Information Technology's Student Seed Fund Program! The award, sponsored by Google.org, will help Lovelace expand their programming this year in their first year as an official ACM-W chapter. The group plans to bring in an outside speaker, screen the film "Code: Debugging the Gender Gap", and increase their social events and Lovelab hours. 

    Lovelace is a student-led group in the Computer Science Department, whose mission is to "create supportive and inclusive environments for learning Computer Science, with the goal of increasing gender diversity in Computer Science within our campus community."
