If you are interested in volunteering for the board or want more information, please contact the nominating committee represenative, Cathy Lux at Cathy@compuguru.com. Here’s the link to bylaws and standing rules to find out more about positions.

Dallas SWE encourages young women to pursue mathematics, sciences and engineering programs and get engaged early in technical fields. To recognize women early on and motivate them to stay and continually learn, Dallas SWE is offering scholarships and certificates.
Applications are now being accepted for the Society of Women Engineers Certificate and Scholarship programs. Some of the program highlights are below. We encourage you to visit our Scholarship page to obtain Scholarship and Certification information and forms.
Scholarships are awarded to female high school seniors who will be majoring in engineering. Applications are due by May 15th. Scholarships vary from $500 to $1000 and may be renewable.
Certificates are awarded to students who excel in science and mathematics with distinction or for an engineering related activity, such as a science fair project or a technical paper competition. Nominated students also should be active citizens in their school and community. We hope that this program will encourage the recipients to consider a future engineering career.
Please share this information with your students and educators through the information letter and flyer found on our website. For additional information, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your support. We look forward to recognizing your talented students!
