CAHSI Allyship Program


The CAHSI Allyship program pairs students in the fundamental courses with student allies (those who have completed data structures) for the success of females in computing. The benefits of the program include learning about resources, growing from shared experiences, connecting with students in your major, learning from professionals, and receiving a small stipend. 


Protégés: undergraduate students pursuing computing-related majors enrolled in computing fundamentals courses.

Allies: undergraduate students who have completed data structures in computing-related majors who are passionate about diversity in computing. They serve as role models and as engaged listeners to Protégé’s needs.

Protégés and Allies are expected to participate in monthly 1-hour professional development cohort meetings led by the Allyship Program leadership team. Allies and Proteges connect in half-hour weekly meet-ups.

Allyship participants from previous years are eligible to apply. Previous Protégé participants are encouraged to apply to serve as Allies if they meet the eligibility criteria.

While the primary focus of the program is for students who identify as women and who are enrolled in computing-related majors, all students who strive for excellence in inclusion are encouraged to apply.


This pilot program is accepting applications from students enrolled at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) or the University of Puerto Rico Mayaguez (UPRM) for the 2021-2022 academic year.
