To help more women advance in engineering academia, the Society of Women Engineers developed the Academic Leadership for Women in Engineering (ALWE) program. This year’s program, ALWE 2017, will be held in conjunction with WE17 in Austin, TX, on October 26-28.
Participants will enjoy interactive sessions that provide best practices for women to advance in academia. This program also provides the opportunity to network across institutions.
ASSIST Grants Pay for Travel, Hotel, and Registration to Attend the Academic Leadership for Women in Engineering Event
Grants will cover expenses for traveling and attending ALWE for those who are eligible. This will include up to $2,000 for round-trip airfare, lodging, conference registration, travel costs, and meals. Learn more here.
With the support of the ASSIST grant, SWE will be able to fund up to 40 young engineering faculty, post-doctoral professionals and graduate students to attend ALWE at WE17. Learn more about eligibility guidelines. If an ASSIST Travel Grant is awarded, recipients are responsible for attending the entire program for which the grant is intended.
This project is based upon work partially supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. 1548200 and through the generosity of the Henry Luce Foundation, Inc.
