Brill Family Scholarship

Description

The late Yvonne Brill is known for her genius in rocket and jet propulsion design, but to her daughter, Naomi Brill, she was just mom. Naomi Brill is a retired mechanical engineer, SWE Fellow, and SWE Distinguished Service Award recipient, who is recognized in her own right for defining next-generation manufacturing processes for portable drug pumps. Yvonne and Naomi Brill endowed the Brill Family Scholarship in 2008 for students studying aerospace or biomedical engineering. Applicants do not have to be a member of SWE to be eligible for SWE scholarships. SWE considers academic achievements, participation in extracurricular or volunteer activities, and interest in engineering. Those who identify as a woman and pursue an ABET-accredited student program may apply for this scholarship. Students who attend an ABET-accredited community college program full-time are also eligible. A personal reference and STEM reference are required. The personal reference must be a person who has known the applicant for two or more years and who is not a relative or member of the applicant's family. For the STEM reference, it is highly recommended that the reference be someone in a STEM field who is familiar with the applicant's academic work. The references must submit the recommendation letters by the deadline stated. Please visit the scholarship's website or contact the Society of Women Engineers for more information.
