Apply to be a Hopper!
Hoppers are volunteers who work at the Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC) in exchange for free conference registration. This is a great way to get involved and connect with other GHC attendees. Hoppers are assigned multiple shifts for a total of 8 hours of volunteer time. Hoppers may have to miss a session or activity at the conference if they are assigned to work. Anyone may apply to be a Hopper, but students from local universities and community colleges are strongly encouraged to apply.
Hoppers are NOT reimbursed for travel expenses. Hoppers pay their own airfare, hotel, meals, and other expenses. Do not apply to be a Hopper until you have secured funding for your travel expenses.
Hoppers applications are open on July 8, 2014 and close on August 8, 2014. Applicants will be notified of the decisions on August 29, 2014.
