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 university.

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 interested in the program must have a 3.3 grade-point-average. Once admitted, participants must maintain a 3.3 GPA.

For information on the WIN program, contact Cathy Banks at 940-898-2769, or 1-800-860-2237, or at

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 per year for up to two years.

CSEM participants are matched with peer, faculty and industry mentors and are eligible for internships and student assistantships. Program participants also will receive career counseling, training in job search skills and assistance in applying for graduate study.

Entering freshmen interested in CSEM must have a minimum score of 20 on the ACT or 950 on the SAT, and be in the top 25 percent of his or her academic class. Sophomores, juniors or seniors must have a minimum overall 3.0 GPA. Entering graduate students must have a minimum 1,000 on the GRE or an undergraduate GPA of 3.25.

Texas Instruments Inc. has pledged a total of $200,000 over two years for WIN and CSEM scholarships.
