|The AWIS Scholarship Program 2013-2014|
The Scholarship Program strives to encourage and reward aspiring women scientists pursuing their degrees in San Diego colleges and universities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
The scholarships, now in their 15th year, are awarded annually and have supported community college, undergraduate, and graduate women in San Diego County pursuing their degrees, conducting research projects, or assisting with additional educational expenses, with an emphasis on STEM fields where women are underrepresented. The fields of study of past scholarship recipients have included: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics and Experimental Psychology. Each recipient receives a $1000 Scholarship Award.
Eligibility: Female students actively engaged in a degree program in the 2013-2014 academic year may apply. Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 and must be affiliated with an institute of higher learning (College and above) in San Diego County. The award can be used for educational expenses including tuition, books, housing, or research.
Applicants will receive an e-mail confirmation of a completed application shortly after the application deadline. Please ensure that you provide a current e-mail address on your application. Scholarship recipients will be notified by the end of April 2014. Awards will be presented at the AWIS-SD 2014 Gala, Spring 2014.
For information on corporate or personal donations to the AWIS San Diego scholarship fund, please contact the Corporate Sponsorship Committee.
AWIS National also offers scholarships through its Educational Foundation? You may apply for both AWIS San Diego and AWIS Educational Foundation Scholarship Programs.
