AAUW offers scholarships to local students

BRATTLEBORO-The Brattleboro Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) is continuing 72 years of academic financial assistance for women and girls by again offering scholarships of up to $1,000 each to qualified candidates who live in Windham County.

Both graduating high school seniors from area high schools, preparatory schools, or home schools and women who are considered college ready by federal financial aid guidelines are eligible to apply. Applications will be judged on academic performance, community involvement, and financial need.

The applicant must be accepted or enrolled as an undergraduate student in a one-year certificate or two- or four-year accredited college degree program for 2024–25. Applicants must have been legal residents of Windham County for a minimum of two years.

Guidance counselors in area high schools have posters and application forms. Information can also be obtained from area college financial aid offices or by contacting the AAUW scholarship committee at [email protected].

Applications must be postmarked by Monday, May 6, and can be sent to AAUW Scholarship Committee, in care of CCV, Attn.: Melanie Crosby, 41 Harmony Place, Brattleboro, VT 05301.

Now in its 97th year, the Brattleboro branch is part of a national organization that has advanced equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research since its founding in 1881.
