One of the most important things AWSN does is recognize individuals and organizations that are making a difference in the community and/or their STEM field. Recognition comes in the form of biographies, mentor stories, Minerva Mentoring Award, AWSN scholarships and educational bursaries.
Minerva Mentoring Award: AWSN recognizes an single individual each year, who has made an inspirational contribution towards the mentoring of women and girls in the areas of STEM.
Athena Outstanding Volunteer Award: In honor of Dr. Margaret-Ann Armour, AWSN offers an annual award to recognize significant contributions made by a volunteer to the AWSN community.
AWSN Scholarship: This annual $3,000 scholarship is offered Alberta-wide and is awarded to third year and above post-secondary student.
WinSTEM Week: Celebrating the careers of women in STEM, AWSN supports this week-long celebration by communicating the many events held in the province. WinSTEM week begins the second Tuesday in October, coinciding with Ada Lovelace Day.
