MASS AWIS has created a scholarship fund to help offset the cost of membership for individuals suffering from hardship. If awarded, a MASS AWIS Member Scholarship provides financial assistance for qualified unemployed or underemployed individuals seeking Professional, Junior or Student memberships. For more information about our membership, click here.

Graduate Students/Post-Doctoral Fellows and those in transition are encouraged to apply.

Awardees will receive:

  • 80% of National Membership reimbursed*
  • 50% of Chapter Membership reimbursed*
  • MASS AWIS Bucks
    This amount can be used to pay for MASS AWIS events or mentoring circle fees.

* We will do retrospective reimbursement. So if you qualify, please apply to the scholarship even if you have already paid your dues within the past year.

For more information on all membership levels, please see the National AWIS website.

The scholarship committee will be opening the Summer 2021 application cycle on June 1st – July 15th.
