CMWA - Carnegie Mellon University

Welcome to CMWA!

The Carnegie Mellon Women’s Association (CMWA) will open its 93rd year with a Fall Reception for CMWA members hosted by Carnegie Mellon University First Lady and Honorary CMWA President Mrs. Mary Suresh at the President’s Residence on September 18, 2014.  The Fall Reception is one of the CMWA’s best attended events, drawing large crowds annually. Invitations and RSVP information about the event will be sent to CMWA members prior to the Reception.

The CMWA provides networking opportunities to women affiliated with CMU through a variety of programs and events held throughout the year. The Association encourages women to develop a greater sense of community life at the University. Additionally, for the past 50 years, the CMWA has provided annual scholarship awards to deserving undergraduate senior women. The funds for the annual scholarships are derived directly from annual membership dues and event fees throughout the year.

Membership in the Association is open to all women associated with the University, including faculty, administrators, trustees, and staff or wives/partners and friends of faculty, administrators, trustees, and staff. Dues are $10 for a yearly membership (July 1 - June 30), go directly toward the Association’s annual scholarship fund. Those wishing to become members and attend the event may complete the online membership registration and bring their dues in person to the Fall Reception.
