SWE Graduate Student Scholarships

SWE Scholarship applications are now being accepted!  You may have thought that SWE scholarships were mainly geared towards undergraduate students, but there are several scholarships that are specific for graduate students.  The scholarships range from $1,000 to a whopping $20,000!!  Applications are due February 15, 2012.

Take a look at the list of the scholarships available for graduate students here.

This year, I received the Jill S. Tietjen, P.E. Scholarship (an electrical engineer and past SWE President, who wrote the book, Her Story: A Timeline of The Women Who Changed America), and it helped me out tremendously!  Considering that most graduate student stipends are on the order of $20k-$25k/year, any little bit helps to defray living expenses.

Good luck to all of those applying!
