Society of Women Engineers @UVA

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, April 7th, 2018. The program gives young women a comprehensive look at engineering fields and UVA’s engineering curriculum through informative speakers 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 2018 Application which can be found here. This spring session particularly targets high school juniors, but sophomores and seniors 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.

The attached flier provides 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 Saturday, March 3rd, 2018.

Interested in Dual Enrollment?

Ms. Pellegrin, Dual Enrollment Coordinator for Paul D. Camp Community College, will be at King’s Fork High School on Nov. 21, 2017 from 9:00-3:00 PM to discuss the Dual Enrollment program. Interested students and parents should sign up in the Guidance Office for an appointment to meet with her. Appointments fill up so sign up quickly.
