The SWE Scholarship Program provides financial assistance to women admitted to accredited baccalaureate or graduate programs, in preparation for careers in engineering, engineering technology and computer science. In 2013, SWE awarded over 200 new and renewed scholarships valued at over $550,000.
SWE provides one application for sophomores through graduate students and one application for freshmen. Applicants complete an application and are considered for all scholarships that they are eligible for.
Scholarships are typically awarded in May (sophomore, junior, senior and graduate students) and July (freshmen and reentry students) for use during the following academic year. Scholarship payments are made in September. Recipients are announced in September.
SWE's Scholarship Program is open to both SWE members and non-members; however, some of the scholarships do require SWE membership.
