Abstract

The National Science Foundation-funded Women in Engineering Scholars program is designed to encourage more women to pursue graduate school in engineering. The program is administered through the Women in Applied Science and Engineering Program at Arizona State University and it includes strong industry participation. The program is based on the theory of self-efficacy or one's belief about how well she or he can perform a given task or behavior, this includes providing the students with opportunities to experience performance accomplishments, encouragement, and support.
