More About the Scholarship Program

The Seattle AWIS Scholarship program began in 1991, and has been awarding scholarships annually to undergraduate Women majoring in STEM at Washington Universities or Colleges. Since then, and with thanks to the support of our generous donors Seattle AWIS had awarded over $250,000 in scholarships.

Seattle AWIS is funded by volunteers and donations.

Donate to the Scholarship Fund

Seattle AWIS encourages and appreciates individual, company, and organization donations to the scholarship fund. All donations are 100% tax-deductible, and 100% of the money is used directly for scholarships. Individuals who contribute at least $1000, and companies/organizations that contribute at least $1500 to the Seattle AWIS scholarship fund will have a scholarship named in their honor. These donors will be acknowledged on the Seattle AWIS website, at an awards banquet, and will have the opportunity to present the scholarships that they fund to the recipient.
