About SWE Scholarships

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 2013, SWE disbursed over 200 new and renewed scholarships valued at over $550,000.

Scholarships are typically awarded in May (sophomore, junior, senior and graduate students) and July (freshmen and reentry students) for use during the following academic year. Recipients are announced in September.

Accredited programs are based on ABET accreditation for universities in the U.S. The list of SWE-approved programs is the same list as the ABET-accredited programs in engineering (EAC), computing (CAC), and technology (TAC).  Engineering or computer science PhD students must be enrolled or accepted at a school with ABET-accredited programs.

In 2010, we launched our first international scholarship. This scholarships will again be awarded to a students studying at a university in the Querétaro, Querétaro, Mexico. There are several SWE-approved programs at four universities.

  • Students who have been out of the engineering or technology workforce for a minimum of two years prior to the beginning of the current course of study
  • Full or part time students
  • Students entering any year of engineering school, including graduate school

The non-traditional scholarships were established to assist women to return to school to obtain an engineering degree. These scholarships apply to:

  • Students who have been out of school for a minimum of two years prior to the beginning of the current course of study
  • Full or part time students
  • Students entering any year of engineering school, including graduate school

There is no minimum GPA requirement for students entering their first year as a reentry or non-traditional student.
