Scholarships available for women and minorities
Scholarships are available at Texas Woman's University to women and minorities
interested in degrees in computer science, engineering or mathematics.
Through the Women In Engineering (WIN) program at TWU, female students
can earn a degree at TWU and at Texas Tech University, Texas A&M University
at College Station or the University of Texas at Dallas.
WIN students have two degree programs open to them.
The first is the 3+2/dual degree program, in which students attend TWU
for three years and then continue their education at either UT-Dallas or
A&M. After completing the program, students receive a B.S. degree in
mathematics from TWU and a B.S. degree in engineering from the partner
The second WIN option allows students to earn a specially designed B.S.
degree from TWU in either computer science or mathematics, then move into
an engineering graduate program at Texas Tech, UT-Dallas or A&M.
Eligible WIN participants receive paid summer internships at Texas Intruments
Inc. Students in the WIN program also are matched with a female peer, faculty
and industry mentors.
Applicants for the WIN program must be women majoring in computer science
or mathematics. Entering freshmen must have a minimum ACT score of 27,
or an SAT score of 1,160 with a 600 in math. Sophomores, juniors and seniors

A second scholarship program, the Computer Science, Engineering and
Mathematics (CSEM) Scholars Program, assists low-income, academically talented
women and minorities majoring in computer science, math or engineering.
Undergraduate and graduate students are eligible for scholarship of $3,125
