Through the generosity of over 700 SWE Members and donors, SWE will offer Registration Grants for the third year to enable more SWE Professional and Collegiate members to attend SWE’s Annual Conference, WE18, which will take place from October 18-20, 2018 in Minneapolis, MN.
Donations for the program are accepted through the WE18 registration process or on the main donation page on swe.org and 100% of donated funds go directly to support this program.
Deadline & Submission Details
The deadline for all applications is June 30, 2018. Recipients will be notified by August 15, 2018. Submissions are judged by SWE CAB Members and video submissions must be kept live through 8/15/2018 for judging.
- Award details for professional members: One full professional member rate registration for WE18.
- Award amount for collegiate members: One full collegiate member rate registration for WE18.
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).
SWE’s Conference Advisory Board will judge applicants. All awardees must register for the conference by the early bird registration deadline. Awards are not transferable to future years and cannot be transferred from one recipient to any other individual.
Thank you again to the individuals who donated this past year to fund WE18 Registration Grants.

Let's Break Boundaries
WE18’s theme, Let’s Break Boundaries is rooted in the notion that all women engineers, young and old, veterans, those in the early stages of their career, and engineers still pursuing their collegiate degree, are breaking boundaries both personally and for women around the world.
The conference itself breaks boundaries by being the largest gathering of women engineers across all major engineering disciples. Facing challenges and breaking through barriers is something SWE has done since its inception in 1950. 2018 and WE18 will be no exception.
