The Amador Branch of The American Association of University Women is offering $10,000 in college scholarships to local women in 2015. The purpose of the AAUW Scholarship Program is to support Amador County women who are currently working towards a Bachelor’s or Graduate degree, or plan to attend a California Community College.
Four $1,000 Community College Scholarships will be awarded to Amador County residents on the basis of personal and career goals, grade point average, and a personal interview. High school seniors and women who are pursing vocational training or changing careers are encouraged to apply. For more information, contact the AAUW Community College Scholarship Chairperson, Kelli Garcia, at 209-304-4800, or firstname.lastname@example.org
Two $2,000 Upper Division/Graduate Scholarships and/or Re-entry Scholarships will be awarded to Amador County residents on the basis of need, grade point average, and personal and professional goals of the applicant. For more information, contact the AAUW Upper Division/Graduate and Re-entry Scholarship Chairperson, Kathy Guletz, at 209-296-4336 or email@example.com
And for the year 2015, we will be awarding an additional $2,000 Scholarship for a student focusing in the Sciences in the memory of Dr. Stephen Honeychurch, a local retired physician, and long time supporter and friend of our AAUW Amador Chapter.
Applications may be obtained online at http://amador-ca.aauw.net/scholarships/, at the local high schools, and from the Amador County Libraries.
All scholarship applications must be postmarked by March 16, 2015, and cannot be returned.
The Amador Branch of AAUW raises money for these scholarships through its annual Home Tour, which will be held on April 18, 2015. The American Association of University Women seeks to promote educational and employment equity for girls and women through its scholarship program.
