The AWIS San Diego Scholarship Program strives to encourage and reward
women pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering and
mathematics (STEM) fields where women are typically underrepresented.
Awardees are selected from an outstanding applicant pool representing
colleges and universities throughout San Diego County. The AWIS San
Diego Scholarships, presented annually for the last 15 years, support
the students’ educational and research expenses. Please join us to
celebrate the endeavors of these outstanding women!
