I highly encourage every single one of you to apply. You get to bond with your fellow UW SWE members while meeting other local SWE chapters. You also get to listen to experts speak about a wide variety of topics and realize that you had questions you didn't even know you had! It's definitely a unique experience that only such a conference can provide. And not to mention, it's right next door in Bellevue!
The conference is from April 5 - 6 in Bellevue, WA. If you are chosen for the scholarship, your registration fee will be reimbursed for you after the conference, but you must complete conference registration by yourself. Early bird registration for the conference ends on March 8. Since the conference is local, transportation and lodging won't be covered. Keep in mind, you MUST be an official UW SWE member to be eligible for the scholarship. (Apply at tinyurl.com/joinsweuw to become a member!)

This website includes the link to register for the conference as well as information about the sessions at the conference. Be sure to look through it and refer to your favorite sessions in your responses!
Here is what is covered:
$75 towards conference registration *Deadline for early bird registration for the conference, which is $75 for national SWE members, is on March 8.
*NOTE* Once you have confirmed your acceptance of the scholarship, you must attend the conference. Failure to do so may result in ineligibility for future scholarships.
