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 (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) field. Recognition comes in the form of biographies, mentor stories, Minerva Mentoring Award, AWSN scholarships and educational bursaries.
Minerva Mentoring Award: AWSN recognizes a 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: In 2021 AWSN has partnered with TC Energy to offer up to 10 - $3000 scholarships to STEM students (third year and above post-secondary student) and STEM re-engagers (professionals who have 2+ years career gap).
WinSTEM Week: Join us October 9-15, 2022 to celebrate the careers of Alberta women in STEM. AWSN supports this week-long celebration by communicating the many events held in the province - start planning your event now and submit it here to add to our calendar! WinSTEM week begins the second Tuesday in October, coinciding with Ada Lovelace Day.
