Welcome!

Auburn University and the College of Sciences and Mathematics (COSAM) are committed to training and providing support to the next generation of women pursing career paths in science and mathematics. The Society of Women in Sciences and Mathematics  (SWSM) was created with a vision to bring together women who serve as leaders and role models and expand the talent pool for the next generation. 

We are committed to increasing awareness of the opportunities available for women at all stages of their careers, supporting experiences to enhance the learning environment, and encouraging young women to pursue career paths in sciences and mathematics. We meet these goals by providing financial support for programs at each stage of the pipeline:

  • Science and Engineering Fair (Middle and High School students)
  • Summer Science Institute (High School students)
  • Women’s Leadership Symposium (High School and Graduate students)
  • Scholarships for Undergraduate Students (College students)
  • Faculty Service Award (Faculty)

By supporting these programs, SWSM is able to provide recognition for excellence and encouragement for the next generation of female scientists and mathematicians through peer-mentoring, professional development and leadership experiences.

Our organization welcomes COSAM alumni, current students, faculty members, and friends to become members! As a member you have an opportunity to broaden the experiences of students of all ages (kindergarten through graduate school) and to make a difference in the careers of women. Your help is necessary to achieve our vision and to foster professional development of women in the sciences and mathematics.

Thank you for your consideration in assisting us with our educational mission.
