SWE Offers Registration Grants for WE16
Through the generosity of the donors below, SWE is able to make WE16 Registration Grants in order to provide assistance to more SWE members (at both the collegiate and professional levels) to attend SWE’s Annual Conference, WE16, which will take place from October 27th – 29th in Philadelphia, PA.
Over 100 individuals participated in the WE16 Giving Campaign to raise funds to provide discounted registrations and stipends. Applications for WE16 Registration Grants are now open and will close on June 15, 2016.
Priority will be giving to professional members who are unemployed or collegiate members who do not have other means of funding conference registration (through section or school-based support). Award amount for professional members: 50% conference registration, $150 stipend, and one complimentary ticket to the WE16 Keynote Breakfast. Award amount for collegiate members: 50% conference registration, $100 stipend, and one complimentary ticket to the WE16 Keynote Breakfast.
Awards will be distributed no later than August 20, 2016. SWE’s Conference Advisory Board will judge applicants. All awardees must register for the conference by September 20, 2016. Awards are not transferable to future years and cannot be transferred from one recipient to any other individual.
