The Society of Women Engineers Detroit Scholarship Program provides financial assistance to Michigan women admitted to accredited baccalaureate programs, as well as community college programs, in preparation for careers in engineering, engineering technology and computer science. Eligible applicants must: reside in SWE Detroit’s section area; be in their senior year of high school or a current community college student; have a 3.0 GPA; and be a woman or other underrepresented gender in engineering and technology.
In September 2016, our dear friend and SWE Life Member, Josie E. Rewald, passed away unexpectedly. Everyone who knew Josie is saddened by the passing of a wonderful leader and mentor in SWE Detroit and General Motors. She was very interested in mentoring students and early career engineers, in particular women. She served as a mentor to many at GM and SWE Detroit, as well as those in and outside of her community. In Josie’s honor, SWE-Detroit has endowed the Society’s first scholarship specifically for community college students.
