Applications Open

The WE Local Collegiate Competition is an excellent opportunity for students to build their resumes and receive direct feedback from other women engineers on their research. Applications to enter the Collegiate Competition are open now. Apply before Monday, November 11, 2019.

At the WE Local Collegiate Competition, undergraduate and graduate students who are selected as Fainalists have the opportunity to present their research  in three styles: short form abstract submission (requirement of all submitters), visual poster presentation and lightning talk. This allows for students to learn and gain insight on their research, and to receive live feedback and encouragement from others within the STEM field.
