WE-GROW Engineers Scholarship
Application Deadline: Monday, May 3, 2021
The Women in Engineering: Graduation and Retention/Recruitment Opportunities for Women (WE-GROW Engineers) project is designed to provide scholarships and support services for high-achieving engineering students.
The WE-GROW Engineers project highlights the public benefits of engineering and utilizes opportunities proven to increase retention of female engineering students, in particular. Over its 5-year duration, annual scholarships of up to $8,800 will be awarded to 32 students. First-year students and third-year students may receive scholarships for up to four years and two years, respectively. The project is funded by the National Science Foundation’s Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S-STEM) program.
WE-GROW Engineers Scholarship Information
Participants accepted into the WE-GROW Engineers project scholarship will receive annual scholarships of up to $8,800. First-year students may receive scholarships for up to four years and third-year students may receive scholarships for up to two years. Since participants must demonstrate a financial need, the funds are intended to fill the gap for tuition, fees, books, and other academic related expenses.
In addition to offering financial support for full-time, undergraduate engineering students, the WE-GROW Engineers project provides additional programs and services designed to promote academic success. These benefits allow students to work directly with faculty as well as connect with peers, to build valuable social networks supporting success at KSU. Some additional opportunities include:
- Undergraduate Research
- Access to Living Learning Communities
- STEM Outreach Efforts
- Peer Mentoring and Tutoring
- Career Mentoring
To be eligible to participate, prospective students must:
