Pioneering Women Program

Pioneering Women Program

To celebrate the achievements of pioneering women in the various fields of computer science, the School of Computing have made a commitment to support the next generation of female leaders through the Pioneering Women Program.


Computer science is an indispensable lynchpin, bridging the global scientific community in its race to address the crises and challenges facing humanity today. To power discovery, the computer science discipline needs to attract and assemble talent and expertise from the widest possible pool — from every demographic and every corner of the world. 
Join us in shaping a new intellectual agenda to reimagine the use of technology in the world.

About the program

The Pioneering Women Program will encompass three core opportunities to nurture and attract exceptional talent to computing disciplines:
  • Lectureships (now open)
  • Fellowships
  • Scholarships
