Each year, the organization disburses several hundred thousand dollars in Fellowships and scholarships for women engineers at the national level. Individual awards vary from $1,000 - $10,000. Some of the SWE engineering scholarships for women are funded by corporate sponsors, and others are disbursed from endowed scholarship funds.

Enrollment in an undergraduate or graduate-level engineering or computer science program at an ABET approved school or in a program accredited by ABET (formerly the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) or CSAB (the computer sciences accreditation board). Grade point average of 3.5 or higher for freshman or 3.0 or higher for higher level applicants (4.0) scale. Initial applicants must be enrolled full time.
