What is Young Women Energized?

For twenty (20) years, Women’s Energy Network of Houston (WENH) outreach program, Young Women Energized (YWE) has worked to empower young women to seek degrees and careers in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) with exciting programs designed to inspire high school young women and support their career ambitions, with the focus on the benefits of studying STEM and joining the Energy Industry. The program has received many accolades, including being named the 2019 and 2021 Best Outreach Program by World Oil.


Each year, YWE awards ten (10) young women a one-time $10,000 scholarship to pursue a degree in STEM. The $10,000 scholarships will provide support, encouragement, and opportunities for these ladies who are “Reimaging the Possible” and earn their STEM degree; thereby changing their lives and the communities in which they live. Through its programs, WEN is committed to introducing high school students to careers in energy, helping to fuel the industry’s need for top talent in the future.
