What Does Seattle AWIS Do?

We envision a world where Seattle women of all ages are actively supported in STEM hobbies, studies, and careers. We believe that the entire Seattle community will benefit when women are positively represented, compensated, and recognized for their achievements in all STEM pursuits.

Support Women in STEM

Seattle AWIS has been supporting women in the greater Seattle area since 1985. Our Girls in Engineering Math and Science (GEMS) program offers STEM learning for 7th and 8th grade girls at Seattle public schools. We offer scholarships to college or university junior or senior women at a four-year college or university in the state of Washington and since 1991, we have awarded over $250,000 in scholarships. Our Group Mentoring Program offers the opportunity for a small group of individuals who have a common professional interest led by an experienced mentor.
