I have only just started to be able to catch up with our pile of journals 
that have been accumulating. In the December issue of Computer, there was 
an article about the CRA-W Distributed Mentor Project.

Typing errors will probably be all mine :)

"Women students in any subdiscipline of computer science and engineering 
are invited to participate in the 2003 CRA-W Distributed Mentor Project. 
Now in its 12th year, the DMP aims to increase the number of women entering 
graduate school in computer-related fields by providing them with research 
experience while they are still undergraduates.

Each year, DMP organizers solicit applications from both students and 
faculty at colleges and universities throughout the US. The program matches 
women mentors and students with related research interests to conduct 10 
weeks of research, generally during the summer months, at the mentor's home 
institution. Students receive $600 per week for research, plus a travel 
stipend. Mentors receive $2500 for mentoring one student, or $4000 for 
mentoring two or more.

In 2001, the CRA-W launched a companion DMP program in Canada. Web-based 
applications and further information for both the US and the Canadian 
programs are available online at http://www.cra.org/craw/dmp/. The deadline 
for the summer 2003 CRA-W Distributed Mentor Project is 14 February.

The project is just one activity of the Computing Resarch Association's 
Committee on the Status of Women in Computing Research.

The IEEE Computer Society participates in the CRA as one of six affiliated 
member/sponsor societies. The CRA assists with leadership development, 
especially for under-represented groups, within the computing research 

All the best
