EngineerGirl Ambassadors

What is an EngineerGirl Ambassador?

An EngineerGirl Ambassador is a female, U.S. high school student who designs, develops, and implements a project in her local community that will encourage younger girls - particularly those with little access to engineering role models - to think about engineering and engineering careers and give them practical experience in engineering design.

Ambassadors will receive training and support from the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) in collaboration with the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) through the EngineerGirl website.

Why be an EngineerGirl Ambassador?

An EngineerGirl Ambassadorship is a unique year-long opportunity to build leadership skills, meet new people, make a difference in your community, and help promote engineering along the way.  Each Ambassador receives:

  1. An all-expenses-paid trip for the student and a chaperone to the SWE Annual Conference.
  2. Project funding of up to $250.
  3. Leadership development and membership in a community of like-minded young women from around the country.
  4. A certificate and letter of recognition from the National Academy of Engineering that may be sent with college applications.
  5. A free one year SWE membership upon acceptance to a university engineering program.
  6. Alumni Ambassadors may continue to participate in the private community and may be invited to participate in other activities over time.

The deadline to submit your application has been extended to Monday, March 4, 2019 at 12:00 noon EST.


The Ambassadors Program is made possible by a generous grant from Mr. John F. McDonnell.
