Once the recipient is enrolled, a letter of enrollment must be provided to Kentucky Blood Center so the scholarship money may be paid. Deadline for application is May 20, 2015. Please return to Mrs. J. Wilson.

UK's New Women in Engineering Summer Program
This summer we will be offering a series of fun and educational workshops covering a variety of engineering topics. The program is targeted toward young women (rising sophomore – senior) who want to gain exposure to engineering through hands-on activities/projects in a collegiate environment.

I ask that you please share this opportunity with any female students who may want to participate. There are six different workshops available and students can learn more about each one and register for a variety of dates via our website: https://www.engr.uky.edu/admissions/women-in-engineering-summer-workshop-series/

Students will attend workshops on UK’s campus throughout June and July working in engineering labs and learning from engineering faculty and graduate students so this is also a great opportunity for them to get a feel for UK!

Don’t hesitate to direct any questions or interested students to me (contact information below). I appreciate all that you do preparing the next generation of students for success!
