The JBU engineering faculty and staff are especially proud of their women graduates.  Over the years, it has been difficult to retain women in the engineering program.  To the end of higher recruitment and retention, some special advocacy has been established.  There are many obstacles for women in a male-dominated profession, thus, the need for extra encouragement during the student years.  What better way to encourage and cultivate the skills and knowledge required in the engineering program than with the honor and financial benefit of scholarships?
