AWIS-San Diego Scholarship Program 2023-2024

The AWIS-San Diego Scholarship Program encourages and rewards outstanding students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields at San Diego colleges and universities.

The Scholarship Program, now in its 24th year, annually supports community college, undergraduate, and graduate students in San Diego County pursuing degrees in STEM fields where women are underrepresented. Scholarship funds help support their research projects and/or assist with additional educational expenses. The fields of study of previous AWIS-SD Scholars include biology, chemistry, physics, computer science, engineering, mathematics, and experimental psychology. Each AWIS-SD Scholar receives a $1000 Scholarship Award.


Students actively engaged in a degree program in the 2023-2024 academic year may apply. Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 from their current institution, be enrolled in an accredited college or university in San Diego County, and demonstrate a commitment to advancing the equitable participation of women in STEM.


All the application materials must be submitted by Friday, March 15, 2024.

Applicants will receive an email confirming submission of a completed application after submitting via the Google Sheets form. Scholarship recipients will be notified in April 2024.

Scholarship recipients will be honored at an award luncheon in Spring 2024.
