  • One EAC member issued a challenge matching gift of $10,000. This ended up raising $130,500.


Proactive Tactic for Recruitment of Women into UT ME

  • UT Cockrell School of Engineering has a terrific Women in Engineering Program (WEP) and they administered the scholarship program. The program consisted of the following:

  • 1.Summer program for women considering engineering at UT (established potential scholarship pool – verbal description of ME scholarships was given)


Proactive Tactic for Recruitment of Women into UT ME

  • Sept-Nov : WEP sent letter to all female ME applicants and those that expressed interest in ME

  • If admitted all female students, were contacted by telephone to congratulate and encourage Freshman Interest Group (FIG)
