Corporate entities and private individuals can support Women in Engineering by making a contribution to one of the WIE funds. Thanks to support from donors, WIE is able to provide opportunities for UMD women to pursue successful STEM-related careers. Help us close the gender gap in engineering.

The Women in Engineering program is grateful for the support from generous corporate donors:

The Women in Engineering Fund is the general purpose fund for Women in Engineering. Giving to this fund will help Women in Engineering reach out to potential female undergraduate students as well as support current undergraduates and graduates in the field of engineering.

The Women in Engineering Living and Learning fund supports Flexus, the Dr. Marilyn Berman Pollans Women in Engineering Living & Learning Community. Flexus is both a residential and academic program, with female undergraduate engineering majors living and studying together in Easton Hall.  Flexus enables students to establish valuable personal and professional relationships with other women in their areas of interest, as well as receive professional mentoring and networking opportunities with women role models in engineering.

The Women in Engineering  Advisory Board has established the Women in Engineering Opportunity Scholarship. The purpose of the Opportunity Scholarship is to help recruit and retain high-performing students, as well as provide support in financial emergencies. Members of the advisory board have contributed to a newly-established endowment fund that allows for awards to be made in the same academic year.
