Support the Society of Women Engineers

UConn SWE Chapter – Road to WE17 in Austin, TX

Society of Women Engineers A Project of UConn Crowdfunding Iniatives

For more than six decades, the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) has given women engineers a unique place and voice within the engineering industry. The UConn SWE Section creates a community for talented young women studying engineering, supporting their journey through UConn Engineering, and beyond.

Join UConn SWE in achieving our goal of sending students to WE17, the world's largest conference and career fair for women in engineering and technology in Austin, Texas | October 26-28, 2017. Please help us achieve our goal of inspiring 20 women engineering students, providing them invaluable ways to connect, discover career opportunities, and advance their professional development.

Whether or not we achieve our goal, all proceeds from this fundraising initiative will support conference travel and registration costs. Any proceeds in excess of our goal will benefit our annual SWE programming and events.

Thank you!
