AAUW is one of the largest funders of women’s graduate education, awarding over $6M in fellowships and grants for the current academic year. The Morgan Hill Branch has established and completed two such endowments: The Irene Blaine/Barbara Cate $100,000 American Fellowship, started in 1991 in the names of two charter members to celebrate our 10th anniversary, was completed in 2002. The Wildflower Run Research and Projects Grants endowment of $75,000 was established in 2014 and completed in 2018.
Interest from completed endowments is used to fund fellowships and grants. This year 320 awards were made, including two supported by MH branch endowments.
