There are many scholarship opportunities available to ISU SWE members. The scholarships listed
are divided into three categories: Iowa State, SWE and Other. All scholarships listed under
Iowa State require that you be enrolled at Iowa State. Those listed under SWE require that
you are a paid SWE member. (Check out the Membership page for more details.) Other contains
scholarships that you may qualify for but that neither require you to be an ISU student or SWE member.
Iowa State University Women's Club (ISUWC)
The Iowa State University Women's Club annually recognizes the academic, personal and community
accomplishments of Iowa State University upper class and graduate status women students through
awards funded by the club and two former members. The number of awards and the amount of each
award varies from year to year depending upon available funds. Last year, seven awards of $500
each were given. These awards are intended as an honor for personal achievement rather than
financial need. A student is eligible for only one award.
Applications for the 2010-11 awards are due March 30, 2010. Students interested in applying
will find more information and an application on their website, http://www.isuwc.org
Awards available and criteria for each are as follow:
