New Year, New Possibilities

By AWIS National

What goals do you want to accomplish this year? The main benefit of a professional organization like AWIS is that it can help you achieve your professional goals!

Our annual scholarship applications are now open. If you are an undergraduate, pre-doctoral student, or returning to a STEM career, apply by February 28. This year we have over $50,000 available to award more recipients.

The new year could also mean a new career. Share your background, experience, and career goals with employers at the Virtual Career Fair on March 15, 2023. This is your chance to explore new opportunities, network with recruiters, and find your perfect fit. Plus, you can log into the event from anywhere using an internet-connected device.

It’s never too late to develop a new skill or adopt a new understanding of life. We just announced our 2023 programs through March.
