About this funder:



Dorothy Prewitt Pohlman was one of the founders of Wenatchee Valley College. As part of her legacy, she created this scholarship, which is administered by the Wenatchee branch of the American Association of University Women. The scholarship supports current or former female students from WVC who plan to continue on at a community college, four year college or university in Washington State to pursue a bachelor’s degree.

For the 2020 scholarship season an additional $1000 scholarship will be awarded in memory of former AAUW member, Joan Crowe. Because of her tireless work helping to develop the local AAUW diversity programs, Joan was named Volunteer of the Year by AAUW. Her friends and family know this scholarship would be an honor and a great joy to Joan.
