Grants to USA, Canada, and International students or employees in the field of computer science for participation in a professional conference. Funding is intended to promote diversity in the advanced computing sector. The grant will cover the expense of participating in the 2020 USENIX Conference on Privacy Engineering Practice and Respect (PEPR '20).

As part of USENIX's ongoing commitment to encourage diversity in advanced computing, they offer Diversity Grants to support computer scientists interested in attending their conferences. All computer scientists from academia or industry who identify as female or who are members of groups underrepresented in tech are encouraged to apply. Applicants must also work in or study computer science or a related field, and attend all days of the main conference program for which they are applying.

The 2020 USENIX Conference on Privacy Engineering Practice and Respect (PEPR '20) will take place as a virtual event on October 15–16, 2020.
