The SWE Baton Rouge Section scholarship program is an annual event with awards presented each spring.  Each fall, local industry is invited to participate in the upcoming year's awards presentation by making monetary donations to the fund.  Each company donating a minimum of $1000 will have the scholarship named after the company.  Smaller donations are pooled to fund scholarships named for individual members of the Section who have greatly contributed to the advancement of the Society and the Section.

Scholarship applications and flyers are distributed through high school guidance counselors in the parishes (counties) surrounding Baton Rouge at the beginning of the spring semester.  Each female applicant must be planning to attend college the following fall semester in engineering or computer science.  An official high school transcript must be submitted along with the completed 4 page application.  Information such as what the applicant has done during summer breaks, why she is interested in engineering, honors & scholarships, SAT/ACT scores and GPA is requested.

After the deadline has passed, the Baton Rouge Sections scholarship committee and officers meet to judge the applications based on the criteria above. In past years 6-7 $1000 scholarships have been awarded annually.

Fellowship recipients are admitted to MIT's Master of Engineering in Logistics (MLOG) program, receive a half-tuition scholarship, and work with P&G on their master's thesis project.
