  2. Cumulative GPA 2.5 or higher
  3. Satisfactory academic progress
  4. Preference given to students that have not received Empower funding in the past year

**Funding for Society of Women in Engineering (SWE), Out in STEM (oSTEM) and Grace Hopper conferences is not provided through this application process. Please reference the Empower website for these processes.
