Women of SU Endowed Scholarship

In today’s tech-driven society, businesses need innovative employees trained in the STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) who can work collaboratively to solve customer problems. 

 This scholarship fund, established by the Women of SU, will provide scholarships to SU undergraduate students who are enrolled full-time in a STEM-related major or program, are in junior or senior standing, and who demonstrate financial need. Special consideration will be given to underrepresented students majoring in STEM fields, especially women, provided that this consideration supports the educational benefit of diversity.

Forty-two percent of the faculty and 43 percent of the students in SU’s College of Science and Engineering are women. Though these numbers show the university to be moving in the right direction, there is more to be done to attract women and underrepresented students to STEM education. 

Please support our immediate goal to fully fund the endowment ($50,000) with a contribution – no amount is too small! Your generosity will help today’s STEM students to become tomorrow’s leaders in science and technology through the gift of education.

Make your gift here. Please choose ‘Other’ in the designation drop-down menu and type in "Women of SU Endowed Scholarship." 

Thank you!

“You can’t design a product with input from just one gender. You need all points of view just as you need age and racial diversity, too, to capture different ideas. You’re not designing for one person.”

Agnieszka Miguel Associate Professor and Chair, Electrical and Computer Engineering

I have been empowered by strong role models like Dr. Agnieszka Miguel, the chair of our department, and Dr. Magarita Takach, who have provided guidance, support and encouragement," she says. "I've also had valuable opportunities (as a student) to network with female professionals and academics from all over the world through organizations like the Society of Women Engineers."
