    The Legacy of the AWIS San Diego Scholars: The Association for Women in Science (AWIS) is a national organization dedicated to achieving equity and full participation of women in science, mathematics, engineering and technology.  Since 2003, six remarkable young women from the San Diego City College Math, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA) Program have received a $1,000 scholarship from AWIS San Diego. Overcoming life challenges – first in their family to attend college, low income, single mom or military veteran, this is their inspiring story of transfer, achievement and success!
