SWE Scholarships support those who identify as a female/woman and pursue an ABET-accredited bachelor or graduate student program in preparation for careers in engineering, engineering technology, and computer science globally. In 2020, SWE disbursed nearly 260 new and renewed scholarships valued at more than $1,000,000!
Applicants complete one application and are considered for all scholarships for which they are eligible.
Freshman scholarships are open to current college freshmen as well as high school seniors. Some, but not all, scholarships require SWE membership.
Note: International students studying or planning to study a SWE-approved program are welcome to apply for SWE scholarships. We do accept ABET-accredited international schools for some of our scholarships. If you are an international student studying at a program in the United States, please select the respective state and school in your application. If you are an international student studying at a program outside of the United States, please choose “other” when entering state under the school sections.
