Motorola Donates $91,000 to Society of Women Engineers
Friday, September 27, 2019 | Comments

The Motorola Solutions Foundation, the charitable arm of Motorola Solutions, announced a $91,000 grant to benefit the Society of Women Engineers (SWE).

The charitable gift enables the SWE to continue its global scholarship program that began with a similar donation from the Motorola Solutions Foundation benefitting women pursuing engineering degrees.

This year’s donation is expected to benefit 10 recipients with a $9,100 scholarship that can be applied toward eligible colleges and universities in 31 countries. Priority will be given to underrepresented populations, as well as students demonstrating financial need.

“As a global leader in mission-critical communications, we know the importance of supporting students pursuing careers in science, technology and engineering,” said Monica Boada Mueller, executive director of the Motorola Solutions Foundation. “We are proud to work with the Society of Women Engineers and invest in the next generation of female innovators.”

“This gift from the Motorola Solutions Foundations notes the importance of supporting women pursuing their engineering degree globally,” said SWE CEO and Executive Director Karen Horting. “A key retention issue for women is financial barriers, and these scholarships help address that need.”

Details on the scholarship will be available on the SWE website in November.
