In 2011 Wildflower Fund monies (run registrations, corporate sponsorships, and individual donations) were allocated to the following:
Provide scholarships to high school girls graduating from Morgan Hill Unified School District (MHUSD) schools.
Julie Alatorre (shown with Margaret McCann, High School Scholarship Chair) is the first member of her family to attend college.
Support Girls Engaged in Math and Science (GEMS), a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) after-school enrichment program.
GEMS is sponsored by AAUW Morgan Hill and consists of monthly field trips, lectures, and other programs. GEMS is free and open to all girls in the Morgan Hill Unified School District in grades 8 through 12.
Provide scholarships to send MHUSD Middle School students to Tech Trek, an AAUW-sponsored one week math and science summer camp at Stanford University for middle school girls.
