Welcome to the Association for Women in Science San Diego Chapter, AWIS-SD!

AWIS-SD is the largest chapter in the National AWIS family and we are proud to further the AWIS mission in our local community.  AWIS-SD hosts outreach science programs, as well as career development and social activities.  AWIS-SD also provides support for women scientists throughout the county through our scholarship program and special science fair awards.  I encourage you to attend our diverse activities and consider joining one of our eight volunteer committees, described on our committees page.  In addition, please visit the AWIS-San Diego online portrait at:
