Each year we award $1000 scholarships to women pursuing degrees in the STEM fields in San Diego County. AWIS San Diego scholarship recipients are not only achieving academic success, they are also involved in community outreach programs related to their fields of study, and AWIS San Diego is proud to support them in their pursuit of a scientific career.

Please help us to encourage aspiring women scientists by posting the attached AWIS San Diego Scholarship flyer on a student information board or website and e-mailing your students. The scholarship application may be downloaded by visiting “” and following the “Opportunities” link, followed by the “Scholarship” link.
