The American Association of University Women (AAUW) provides more than $3.7 million to outstanding women and nonprofit organizations, including colleges and universities, this academic year.
You can apply for publication grants, dissertation fellowships, and project funding now. Deadlines vary for each grant, with the first on November 15. You can view a list of past recipients, including any from your institution or alma mater.
Collaborate with your local AAUW branch and apply at any time for an AAUW Legal Advocacy Fund grant of up to $750 to host an event on sex discrimination issues.
Build your career. You and your colleagues can enhance your CVs by serving on an AAUW fellowship and grant review panel in your field. You can also use our online resources to design effective meetings, develop your professional brand, or incorporate gender issues into the classroom. Or host a workshop at the next National Conference for College Women Student Leaders. Requests for workshop proposals will come out next semester.
Give free membership. All undergraduate students on your campus can join AAUW for free as e-student affiliates and become a part of the AAUW community. Students have access to all member benefits and are first in line when applying for leadership programs like Elect Her–Campus Women Win and the National Student Advisory Council. Send an e-mail to student leaders, both women and men, to make sure they take advantage of this free benefit.
You can also use our Member Services Database to reach out to other C/U representatives and to monitor how many of your students join AAUW as e-student affiliates. Contact us (800.326.2289 or firstname.lastname@example.org) to get started. Stay connected with the AAUW community online through our blog, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr.
Please contact me at email@example.com to share how your membership is working at your campus or to provide suggestions for the C/U partner member program. We value your membership and hope that your school takes advantage of the opportunities and resources available to you.
A weekly pro-choice and progressive radio program dedicated to educating and sharing, through our research and activism, what we have learned. In order to promote change, people need to know the truth and hear what is going on from voices who are otherwise not heard. We will give a mic to those voices and lives as much as we possibly can.
Reading and discussion, while good, require action in order to generate change.
