WE Local Travel Grants were established to provide financial assistance to SWE members who attend WE Local conferences. Donations made to WE Local’s Travel Grant fund along with overages (as applicable) from prior WE Local conferences are used to fund the grants.

Grants provide support to SWE members who may not have access to funding and in result may not benefit from attending a WE Local conference that builds networks, provides professional development and inspires and unites individuals in engineering and technology.

You may apply as a Collegiate or Professional Member and may only submit one application per fiscal year. The written statement will be evaluated by the WE Travel Grant Subcommittee to determine who will receive funding. Your responses to the demographic questions will be used to determine the amount of the grant.

Grants for FY20 will include a discount on an early bird registration rate and a WE Local Awards dinner admission.

Additional funding may be available in future years, depending on overages obtained from WE Local conferences.

Deadline to apply: Friday, November 29, 2019 11:59 p.m. CT.
