SWE-WI Scholarship Fund drive

As you may know, this last year we awarded 2 scholarships to female engineering students attending colleges in the Wisconsin- Upper Michigan area. Our next application period is coming soon so we hope to get additional funds by October 31, 2018. We have $860 toward the next $1000 so we are close. Your SWE-WI Scholarship team wants to keep this tradition going. Currently, SWE-Wi has an endowed scholarship for 1-$1000 scholarship each year, but we would like to raise additional funds to allow for 1 or 2 additional $1000 scholarships. Our next application period is coming soon so we hope to get additional funds by October 31, 2018. We have $860 toward the next $1000 so we are close.

Online donations are accepted at http://www.swewisconsin.com/pages/Support/Scholarship.html or contact the Scholarship Committee at SWE-WI_Scholarship@swe.org Thanks again for your support!
