The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Collegiate Competition is designed to provide undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to present their research to a broad technical audience in two stages: online abstract submission and a visual poster presentation with face-to-face discussion. This allows for the student to learn and gain insight on their research, and to receive live feedback and encouragement from others within the STEM field.
Collegiate Competition at WE Local
SWE is accepting submissions for the WE Local Collegiate Competition at each conference. Each conference location has two submission categories: Undergraduate Collegiate and Graduate Collegiate.
All entrants are required to submit an abstract online for judging of the first stage of the Collegiate Competition. All submissions must be submitted online and are limited to one submission per person for all WE Local conferences. The abstract deadline is Thursday, November 30 for the Tulsa WE Local.
The top five finalists within each category (Undergraduate Collegiate and Graduate Collegiate) per WE Local location will be selected and notified. Each finalist will then compete in the technical poster stage of the competition to which they applied in. Finalists will receive recognition and awards during the conference awards ceremony and three finalists from each category will be awarded first, second and third place.
Each finalist will receive a $250 travel stipend to attend a WE Local conference and comp Collegiate Member registration.
