The AAUW State College Branch presents educational scholarships to deserving women each year. The purpose of these scholarships is to support women who, at some point, have interrupted their academic work for at least two years and who wish to resume or continue their studies at this time.
The AAUW State College Branch awards community grants to organizations, community and school libraries, and other service and program entities located in Centre County, PA. Proposals for funding must be for programs or services that reach county residents half or more of whom are women and/or girls. The primary thrust of the organization's project must be educational. Applications must be submitted by the organization that will conduct the proposed program or service.
