Apply for SWE Scholarships — yes, as a grad student!

Many graduate students don’t realize that SWE scholarships are available beyond the B.S. level. These scholarships are a great way to get some supplementary funds to help with conference travel or other school-related expenses. Don’t miss this opportunity to apply! Personally, the SWE scholarship has helped me get through all my degrees, and I’m extremely grateful!

Here’s the announcement that went out today from SWE HQ:

Apply now for Society of Women Engineers scholarships for the 2015-2016 academic year. Students who will be sophomores through PhD candidates can apply on-line by February 16, 2015.

You complete one application and are considered for all scholarships for which you are eligible. The online application is entirely electronic – including submittal of reference recommendations and transcripts.

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 2014, SWE disbursed over 230 new and renewed scholarships valued at over $720,000.
