About the Athena Foundation

The Athena Foundation was established as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization to award scholarships to five deserving high school senior women within San Diego County who demonstrate exemplary skills in science and technology. Chosen from over hundreds of applications, these outstanding young women are presented with scholarships each year at our Pinnacle Awards gala.

The Foundation is overseen by an active Board of Directors comprised of Athena members and former Directors who are committed to nurturing and supporting the next generation of women leaders in science, math and technology. A representative of the Foundation also sits on the Athena Board of Directors. The Athena Foundation partners with the San Diego Foundation to facilitate the dissemination of the Athena Pinnacle Scholarship Fund.
