What else is required?
We expect that you will remain a CUNY student in good standing, making progress towards graduation in your designated technology area of study, maintaining a 3.0 GPA, and sharing your transcript with the WiTNY program office at the end of each semester.
You are to participate in 4 community service events throughout the year that are associated with encouraging more young women to pursue education in technology. One of these events is to be designed by you. Approval of each event is required, as is a short write up at the conclusion of the event.
As part of the WiTNY program, we will conduct a number of surveys throughout the year to collect data about your experiences as a tech student in order to help future generations of young women. We expect you to participate in these data collection efforts.
As a WiTNY Scholar, you will be a member of our community and will be invited to participate in special internships, our Distinguished Conversation Series, mentoring and professional development sessions, and many other WiTNY sponsored events.
