The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Scholarship Program provides financial assistance to those who identify as a woman and are studying community college, baccalaureate, or graduate programs in preparation for careers in engineering, engineering technology, and computer science. All SWE Scholarship applicants must be planning to attend a school with ABET-accredited programs. Undergraduate and community college applicants must be planning to study an ABET-accredited program in engineering, technology, or computing in the upcoming academic year. Masters and PhD candidates must be enrolled or accepted at a school with ABET-accredited programs in engineering, computing, or technology. SWE judges applications based on four main criteria - academic preparation, leadership and activities, work experience, and interest in engineering.
SWE provides an application process for sophomores through graduate students and a separate application process for incoming freshmen. Both application processes have their own dates pertaining to when the application opens and when the applications and reference letters are due. Applicants complete an application and are considered for all scholarships for which they are eligible.
