About this funder:



This scholarship was named to honor Helen Whitmore, a well-respected rancher and teacher from California. It was initiated in 1993 by a friend and AAW Past President, Mitzi Ayala Perdue. It was established to increase active involvement in AAW and to encourage members to influence their home affiliate members. 

This scholarship is available to any AAW member to attend the annual AAW Convention held in November of each year.  The purpose of this scholarship is to encourage an awareness of AAW in young women, to increase active involvement in AAW, and to challenge them to have an influence on their peers. Only one applicant per affiliate will be accepted.

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


  • Affiliates are encouraged to provide additional funds, if needed, and assist with housing, travel and registration arrangements for their scholarship recipient.
  • Applicants must have an agriculture relationship and interest.
  • The applicant may be of any age, but cannot have attended a past Convention.
  • Application form is to be signed by the applicant and the president/or other designated officer.
