KAWSE Programs

All four KAWSE programs work to increase the participation, retention and advancement of girls and women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). 

The GROW, EXCITE, SUCCEED and ADVANCE programs each have a tab in the left hand column where you can find information for each program and upcoming events. These programs are open to all genders, and emphasize the exciting educational and professional opportunities available in various STEM disciplines. 

If you have any questions, please let us know!
