The Society of Women Engineers at the University of Virginia invites high schoolers to apply to our High School Visitation program on Saturday, October 21st, 2023 held on our Charlottesville Grounds. The program provides young women and gender-queer
high school students a comprehensive look at engineering fields and UVA’s engineering curriculum through informative speakers, an interactive design activity, tours, and much more. The program is designed to benefit participants with all levels of engineering experience, but we particularly target those students who are not yet familiar with the field and may be interested in applying to engineering schools or pursuing a STEM career.
To apply, students should complete the HSV Fall 2023 Application which can be found here. Students who have previously applied to HSV, are in the targeted grade level, and demonstrate a strong interest in engineering through their short answer questions will receive priority acceptance.
The linked information packet provides more information about the event and instructions on how to apply online through our website. Additionally, the attached flyer can be distributed for easy advertisement of the event.
The online application must be completed by 11:59 pm on Sunday, September 24th, 2023
