Region i Awards Program is now open!
SWE Awards celebrate the lifelong contributions women engineers and technologists make to our society—and our world. We encourage and reward advancements in technological innovation, leadership, education, work/life balance, outreach and diversity. Region i has launched an enhanced region awards program for FY15, but we need you to apply!
Necessary documentation is included below for member, program and company awards. No submission is necessary for section awards. For more information and award packets, please visit our Region i Awards Website. All submissions are due on November 28, 2014 and will be presented at our FY15 region conference in Kansas City.
Additionally, our committee is looking for judges! If you would like to help our committee, please fill out your information at this form. You will be able to rank your choices between reviewing member, program, or company awards. The time commitment will be minimal.
If you have any questions, please contact the Region i Awards chair directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Region i Scholarships
For the first time, Region i will award three scholarships in the amount of $400 each to three deserving Region i members at iCON15 in Kansas City. One undergraduate, graduate, and back-to-school professional will be awarded a scholarship. The scholarship committee is looking for both committee members, as well as scholarship judges! Committee members will assist in setting up the scholarship program (application, judging system) in time for applications to be submitted by early November. Judges will help with selecting our scholarship winner (late December/January time-frame). The time commitment will be about 1 hour per week to setup the criteria, and then about an hour to judge the submissions. You may not be a judge if you intend to apply for a scholarship, but you may assist us in setting up the criteria. This is a great way to contribute to SWE and add something meaningful to your SWE Resume!
Please contact the Region i Scholarship Committee Chair: Adriana Aguilar (email@example.com) if you are interested in either being a part of the scholarship committee or helping judge scholarships later in the year.
