The SWE Scholarship Program provides financial assistance to those who identify as a female/woman and are studying community college, baccalaureate, or graduate programs in preparation for careers in engineering, engineering technology and computer science. In 2019, SWE awarded nearly 260 new and renewed scholarships valued at over $810,000.
