Sponsors and Supporters:
The Women's Technology Program would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. Each year WTP must generate significant support to continue.

Why we need your help

The fee to attend WTP is $3,000 (for students who can afford to pay) but this amount covers less than half of the actual per-student cost of running the program. Rather than charge each student $6,500, we seek donations from our sponsors to help subsidize program costs not covered by the standard fee.

In addition, we often waive or discount the standard WTP fee, based on family need. Historically, 35-40% of WTP students receive fee waivers or discounts. Our goal is that all admitted students be able to attend WTP regardless of their family financial situation.

Gifts and grants of all sizes are most welcome! Here are some ways you can become a contributor:

Individual Donors

To support the Women's Technology Program through a designated gift to one of our two curriculum tracks, please visit the online Giving to MIT website. Under "Search Designations" enter " WTP" and you will see links to gift forms for the EECS and ME tracks.

Corporations and Foundations

The Women's Technology Program welcomes funding from corporations and foundations. Representatives from sponsoring organizations are invited to our final banquet to meet the students, and engineers from sponsor companies often participate as guest speakers. To learn more, contact: Cynthia Skier, WTP Director, (617) 253-5580.

Thank you for helping us continue this important outreach to young women!
