NCWIT 2021 AiC Award
Each year the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) recognizes students who self-identify as women, genderqueer, or non-binary in grades 9 through 12 who are active and interested in computing and technology through their Aspirations in Computing (AiC) program. Awards for AiC recipients are selected based on their aptitude and aspirations in technology and computing, as demonstrated by their computing experience, computing-related activities, leadership experience, tenacity in the face of barriers to access, and plans for post-secondary education. Since 2007, more than 17,000 students have received an Award for AiC.

- Sreeanvitha Emani received a 2021 Massachusetts State Aspirations in Computing Award.
