Amer­i­can As­so­ci­a­tion of Univer­sity Women Schol­ar­ships avail­able

Hawaii Tribune Herald - - COMMUNITY -

The Hilo branch of the Amer­i­can As­so­ci­a­tion of Univer­sity Women in­vites women at­tend­ing the Univer­sity of Hawaii at Hilo to ap­ply for schol­ar­ships.

Ap­pli­ca­tions must be submitted by March 20. In 2018, AAUW plans to make awards to­tal­ing $6,000.

AAUW will con­duct a work­shop ti­tled “Writ­ing an Ef­fec­tive Schol­ar­ship Ap­pli­ca­tion” to im­prove ap­pli­cants’ suc­cess in ap­ply­ing at noon Feb. 5 and 3 p.m. Feb. 14 at the Kilo­hana Writ­ing Cen­ter at UH-Hilo.

To be el­i­gi­ble for the schol­ar­ship, ap­pli­cants must be fe­male grad­u­ates of a Big Is­land high school or a fe­male stu­dent at UH-Hilo with res­i­dent sta­tus in East Hawaii. Ad­di­tion­ally ap­pli­cants must be en­rolled in a bac­calau­re­ate de­gree or post-bac­calau­re­ate de­gree/cer­tifi­cate pro­gram at the UH-Hilo and have at least ju­nior sta­tus (60 or more cred­its) at the be­gin­ning of the aca­demic year for which the schol­ar­ship is sought.

The mis­sion of AAUW is “ad­vanc­ing eq­uity for women and girls through ad­vo­cacy, ed­u­ca­tion, phi­lan­thropy and re­search.”

Every year, AAUW spon­sors mul­ti­ple fundrais­ing events to raise money for schol­ar­ships for women in East Hawaii as well as a va­ri­ety of ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams fo­cused on em­pow­er­ing women and girls. To sup­port or join the or­ga­ni­za­tion, con­tact El­iz­a­beth Hansen, branch pres­i­dent, at or 747-4665.
