Each year, Racine AAUW awards scholarships to a Racine County woman who is entering the first or second semester of her junior or senior year at a four-year accredited, degree-granting college or university and a Racine County woman entering her third or fourth semester at a two-year college the following fall.
Application materials are available by clicking on the links below. The deadline for applying is usually in February of the year in which the scholarships are awarded.
Racine AAUW has established an endowment fund at the Racine Community Foundation to ensure that the organization can award scholarships to future generations.
Racine AAUW has also awarded grants to local nonprofit agencies to help women take their GED tests.
On a national level, the Racine Branch also contributes funds for fellowships through AAUW.
