College and university students can join AAUW for a very small fee.

AAUW branches and states provide funding for local scholarship programs across the U.S. for qualified women. Participating branches and states determine their scholarship amounts and eligibility criteria, and applicants apply directly to the opportunities for which they are qualified.

As the skill requirements of jobs continue to increase, access to postsecondary education for all students should as well. Even in these difficult economic times, it is critical that we invest in higher education, which is the most direct route to innovation, job creation, and long-term economic self-sufficiency. State funding for public education is $10 billion below pre-recession levels, negatively affecting the quality and affordability of college.
