SWE Endowed Scholarships: Wendy Landwehr Memorial Scholarship -In the summer of 2017, the SWE Chicago Regional Section (SWE-CRS) established the Wendy Landwehr Memorial Scholarship. Wendy was passionate about being a member of the Society of Women Engineers. Wendy was former president of SWE-CRS, Senior Life Member, Board Member, Fellow, and a Trustee Nominee.  She worked as an engineer and project manager for Northrop Grumman for 31 years before retiring in July 2016.  The Wendy Landwehr Memorial Scholarship is selected by SWE-CRS, a professional section founded in 1952 that supports SWE members in the Chicagoland area, including Rockford, NW Indiana, and as far south as Joliet.  More information about the Wendy Landwehr Memorial Scholarship can be found here.

Endowed SWE Scholarships are awarded annually and support the next generation of engineers. To establish an endowed scholarship that will be awarded in perpetuity, visit this page (scroll down to “Scholarship Endowments”) or donate to an endowed scholarship here!

Endowed Scholarships are managed by the SWE Board of Trustees.
