Since 1881, AAUW (American Association of University Women) has been the nation’s leading voice promoting education and equity for women and girls. At the national level, AAUW provide educational opportunities and equity for women and girls through research and support of fellowship and grants programs.
AAUW Morgan Hill supports the five national 501(c)3 AAUW funds that promote equity for women and girls. While Morgan Hill has only 40,000 residents, the Morgan Hill branch of AAUW is consistently one of the top 20 branches nationwide in its financial support of these programs:
One of the world’s largest sources of funding for graduate women, AAUW provides fellowships and grants to outstanding women and nonprofit organizations. Over its 125 year history, AAUW has awarded over $100 million in grants and fellowships.
Fellowship and grant recipients perform research in a wide range of disciplines and work to improve their schools and communities. Their intellect, dedication, imagination, and effort promise to forge new paths in scholarship, improve the quality of life for all, and tackle the educational and social barriers facing women in the United States and around the globe.
