About the AWIS Scholarship Program

The Scholarship Program strives to encourage and reward outstanding women pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields at San Diego colleges and universities.

The Scholarship Program, now in its 18th year, annually supports community college, undergraduate, and graduate student women in San Diego County who are pursuing degrees in STEM fields where women are underrepresented.  Scholarship funds help support their research projects and/or assist with additional educational expenses. The fields of study of previous AWIS-SD Scholars include Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, and Experimental Psychology. Each AWIS-SD Scholar receives a $1000 Scholarship Award and 1 year complimentary AWIS-SD Chapter-only membership.

Applications are now closed.  Applicants will receive an e-mail confirming submission of a completed application approximately 2-3 weeks following the application deadline. Scholarship recipients will be notified by April 28th, 2017.

2017 Scholarship recipients will be honored at the WIST Conference.
