We have limited capacity of 800 attendees. As always, we expect that 50% of the attendees will be students from 2 and 4 year institutions at all levels of education, 25% of expected attendees will be educators,  and 25% are industry professionals—again at various levels of their careers.

WiCyS scholarships will be given out to students (maximum 400) and faculty (maximum 50). Scholarship recipients will receive guaranteed registration with subsidized registration fee ($30 for students and $150 for faculty) which will include two nights of shared lodging (March 30-31) at the J.W Marriott Resort and Spa, Tucson. There will be some travel scholarships (up to $500) available to WiCyS scholarship recipients. Deadline for WiCyS scholarship application is November 21st .  Acceptance notification is December 5.
