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.

Read about the success of our Member Scholarship here.

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 membership levels, please see the National AWIS website. For Student membership information, visit the Student Membership page.


The scholarship committee will be opening the Fall 2020 application cycle on October 15th – November 15th.
