About – Martha Maxwell Scholarship Fund

For those who knew her, Martha Maxwell was a fun-loving enthusiast who loved to make light of any situation. She was passionate about SWE and loved to share her passion with young women starting out in the engineering field. Martha’s career took her through industrial engineering and manufacturing roles, most recently as a Project Engineer in the Advanced Manufacturing department at Rockwell Automation. She also was an active member of SWE-WI for many years, and served in numerous leadership positions, most recently as Section Representative. In August 2012, Martha passed away after a battle with cancer.
To honor Martha’s memory and continue fostering her excitement about engineering, math, and science for young girls and women, SWE-WI has created a memorial scholarship fund in Martha Maxwell’s name. The goal is to raise funds for $1000 scholarship will be awarded to SWE collegiate members attending school in Wisconsin or the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
