Applications Available for AAUW Community Action Grants

AAUW (formerly known as the American Association of University Women), a leader in advancing education for women, annually offers fellowship and grant programs designed to help women gain greater access to educational and economic opportunities.

The AAUW Community Action Grants Program provides funds to individuals, AAUW branches, and AAUW state organizations as well as local community-based nonprofit organizations for innovative programs or non-degree research projects that promote education and equity for women and girls.

The program's one-year grants ($2,000 to $7,000 each over one year) provide seed money for new projects. Two-year grants ($5,000 to $10,000 each over two years) provide start-up funds for longer-term programs that address the particular needs of the community and develop girls' sense of efficacy through leadership or advocacy opportunities. Topic areas are unrestricted but should include a clearly defined activity that promotes education and equity for women and girls. Special consideration will be given to projects focused on K-12 and community college girls' and women's achievements in science, technology, engineering or math.

To be eligible, applicants must be women who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Nonprofit organizations must be based in the United States. Grant projects must have direct public impact, be nonpartisan, and take place within the United States or its territories.
