Overview:

For well over a decade, AAUW San Diego’s Scholarship Fund Committee has awarded more than $100,000 in scholarships to local college and university students who seek to achieve a baccalaureate degree.

AAUW scholarship awards are both merit-based and need-based. After reviewing  and rating all applications, the Scholarship Committee will contact finalists for a personal interview. Scholarships will be presented and recipients honored at San Diego AAUW’s annual June luncheon, which awardees are expected to attend.

All majors will be considered on an equal basis. After reviewing applications, the Scholarship Committee will select the finalists for the year's scholarship awards. Applicants who have been ranked as finalists will be contacted for a personal interview with the Scholarship Committee. Scholarship recipients will be honored by the San Diego Branch of AAUW at their annual June luncheon.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
