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.
AWSN Scholarship: This annual $3,000 scholarship is offered Alberta-wide and is awarded to third year and above post-secondary student (with approximately 50 or more applicants).
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 always begins the second Tuesday in October, coinciding with Ada Lovelace Day. STEM Affair: Honouring leaders in the community and celebrating the achievements of AWSN, members programs and others in the community who have supported further STEM initiatives.
