The Society of Women Engineers

Jan 28, 2019

The Society of Women Engineers at the University of Virginia invites high school sophomores, juniors and seniors to apply to our High School Visitation program on Saturday, March 30th, 2019. The program gives young women a comprehensive look at the different engineering fields and UVA’s engineering curriculum through informative speakers, panels, lab tours, and hands-on design activities. The program is designed to benefit participants with all levels of engineering experience, but we particularly target those students who are not yet familiar with the field and may be interested in applying to engineering schools or pursuing a STEM career.

To apply, students should complete the HSV Spring 2019 Application which can be found on the UVA SWE Website (https://www.virginiaswe.org/hsv). This spring session particularly targets high school seniors and juniors, but sophomores can also apply. Students who have previously applied to HSV, are in the targeted grade level, and demonstrate a strong interest in engineering through their essay will receive priority acceptance and priority consideration for an overnight stay at UVA hosted by a SWE member.

The attached flier and information sheet provide more information about the event and instructions on how to apply online through our website.

The application must be completed online by 11:59 pm on Monday, March 4th, 2019.
