Internet2 wants you to recognize her efforts by nominating her for either a Gender Diversity Award or the Gender Diversity Award in Recognition of Carrie Regenstein.

Through these awards, scholarships go to women, including graduate students, working at Internet2 member organizations. Scholarships are applied to registration, transportation, and housing costs, with the goal that awardees will bring new technology ideas and strategies back to their institutions. Winners also receive meaningful individual career development support.
