American Association of University Women Career Development Grants (AAUW) The AAUW is committed to ensuring that “all women have a fair chance” to achieve their education and career goals. This is just one program through which the organization awards financial assistance for education. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents whose last degree was received before June 30, 2010. Funds are available for tuition, fees, books, supplies, local transportation, and dependent care.
Grants provide support for course work beyond a bachelor’s degree, including a master’s degree, second bachelor’s degree, certification program, or specialized training in technical or professional fields. Course work must be taken at an accredited two- or four-year college or university in the United States or at a technical school that is fully licensed or accredited by the U.S. Department of Education. Funds are not available for doctorate-level work.
