Apply for a SWE scholarship!

Applications are now being accepted for 12 Minnesota Section of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE-MN) fall scholarships for women engineering and computer science students at schools in Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota. 

The application deadline is Friday, March 19, 2021.

View the list of available scholarships and judging criteria.

Applicants are judged on the basis of their potential to succeed in an engineering career, communication skills, involvement in extracurricular or community activities and leadership skills shown in those activities, demonstrated work experience and success, and academic success. All applications are judged by a committee of Minnesota SWE professionals who represent different fields of engineering.

Eligibility:
  • Scholarships will be awarded to engineering and computer science students who identify as women and attend an ABET-accredited institution in Minnesota, North Dakota, or South Dakota. You do not need to be a SWE member to be eligible.
  • U.S. citizenship may be required for some corporate partner scholarships.
  • Past recipients may submit a new application for the current scholarship year. Any given student may only receive a given corporate partner’s scholarship once, so repeat applicants may be eligible for a smaller number of the currently offered scholarships.
Students who complete the application are considered for all scholarships for which they are eligible. Recipients will be notified by mid-May, with the scholarship monies issued for Fall Semester 2021. A list of recipients will be available on the SWE-MN website shortly after recipients are notified. Dependent upon COVID-19 restrictions, recipients will be recognized at the Minnesota SWE Section awards banquet. Those students not selected as recipients will be notified via email by the end of May.

Additional questions may be addressed to the scholarship program chairs Lauren Valente and Kristen Ott at scholarshipscochairSWEMN@gmail.com.
