In addition to receiving funding, principal investigators (PIs) have the opportunity to join a community of practice, participate in cross-site evaluation of student outcomes, collaborate with Google researchers, request supplemental funding and support from TensorFlow, and request funding for undergraduate research. Strong applications will demonstrate how the proposed workshop builds student self-efficacy, sense of belonging, practical skills, motivation to pursue computing research, and actionable strategies to pursue graduate studies. Partnership with other local institutions and organizations, both PhD-granting and not, is strongly encouraged.
