Emerging Leader Abie Award

Emerging Leader Abie Award

The Emerging Leader Abie Award in honour of Denice Denton recognizes a junior faculty member for high-quality research and significant positive impact on diversity.

The award honours the life and career of Professor Denice Denton (1959 – 2006), an engineering faculty member and the first female dean of a school of engineering in a major United States research university. She worked throughout her life to give minorities a voice, make engineering attractive to women and minorities, strongly promote diversity in higher education, and help many break barriers and find their path in life.

Recipients will be honoured by the technical women’s community at the Grace Hopper Celebration.
The award includes a prize of $7,000.

Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).

Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
