Application Criteria: Female students currently in undergraduate or graduate programs or those that have graduated in prior 3 years (in or after 2021) are welcome to apply.

Key Application Dates and Process:

  • July 15, 2023 – Application period opens for female students
  • September 8, 2023 – Application period closes at 11:59p ET

Please check the WAVE website for event updates.

Travel Costs: Thanks to our sponsors, WAVE can offer reimbursements for travel costs for out-of-town scholars. The value of the travel stipend will range based on distance of travel and need. We also have a limited block of complimentary, shared rooms available on a first-come, first serve basis.

Unfortunately given the high volume of candidates that WAVE receives for this event, WAVE cannot provide feedback on submissions that were not accepted.  Candidates that are not available to attend the event are still encouraged to apply and submit their resume as all resumes will be included in a resume book provided to sponsors.
