AAUW — Funding Women’s History

Read about the history of AAUW as it relates to women’s pursuit of higher education, beginning after the Civil War and continuing today with a total of $115 million in fellowships and grants to more than 13,000 scholars in the United States, its territories and 150 countries.  In the 2020-21 academic year alone, AAUW awarded $3.9 million.


The AAUW North Carolina board has arranged for the Sister of Mine; Hear the Voices presentation (yes, the one we were going to have at the conference and at the Governor’s mansion) to be done on Zoom on August 25, 2020 (Tuesday) at 8:00 p.m. Plan for about an hour which will include time for questions. There is a 7 minute trailer on the AAUWNC.org website.  You will see a picture of the ladies who are a part of the presentation. This is a must see event!
