Paying for college has only gotten harder over the years.  The Society of Women Engineers recognizes that and offers scholarships at both the local and national level.  We in the Chicago Regional Section offer scholarships to women within the Chicagoland area who will be entering engineering programs in the fall.  National SWE offers scholarships to women all over the country from entering freshman all the up through grad students.  If you are or will soon be a engineering student, I encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities.  If you know someone who might benefit from this knowledge, please spread the word!

If you are a SWE member, you can support this initiative by encouraging your company to donate the funds for these scholarships and/or help us judge the scholarships.  It is truly inspiring to read about the girls’ accomplishments.  There are far more deserving young women than we have funds to support.
