AAUW Aurora Colorado Branch Scholarships

Scholarship Sponsored by American Association of University Women Inc

Value: $1,500
Awards Available: 3
Deadline : Apr 30, 2024

Each May, Aurora AAUW awards at least one $1,000 scholarship to an Aurora resident for their junior or senior year at a Colorado college or university with a minimum 3.0 GPA.  Because of the generosity of our members and community, we often award more than one scholarship for $2,000.  All scholarship winners are awarded student membership in AAUW.  This year we  awarded three $2000 scholarships.

Our Local Scholarship is supported by a fall fundraiser. Additionally, friends and family have donated to the scholarship in honor of long time AAUW members who have passed.
