Each year, AWC/PS offers two $1000 scholarships to two women pursuing a computing related degree in a Puget Sound area college. In addition, a one-year membership to AWC/PS is also included for both recipients. The AWC/PS Board of Directors selects the scholarship recipient based on academic performance and merit.
