Fellowships and Grants

AAUW  has a long  and distinguished  history of advancing educational and professional  opportunities  for women in  the United States and around the globe. One of the  world’s  largest  sources of  funding for graduate women, AAUW provides about  $4 million in  funding  for more than 278 fellowships and  grants  to   outstanding   women   and   nonprofit  organizations   each academic year. Our members fundraise and contribute themselves through their memberships  and personal   donations.  Our goal is to give a broader community of women access to educational and economic opportunities — breaking  through  barriers  so  that  all  women  have a fair chance.






Fellowship and grant recipients perform research in a wide range of disciplines and work to improve their schools and communities. Their intellect, dedication, imagination, and effort promise to forge new paths in scholarship, improve the quality of life for all, and tackle the educational and social barriers facing women in the United States and around the globe.
