AAUW has a distinguished history of advancing educational and professional opportunities for women in the United States and around the globe for more than 130 years. AAUW Tarrant County Branch contributes annually to this National AAUW Fund. For the 2019–20 academic year, AAUW is awarding $4 million in fellowships and grants to 259 women and community projects. These awards enable recipients to overcome barriers to education and advancement and to become leaders in business, government, academia, community activism, the arts and sciences.
By easing the pressure of financing academic and community work, AAUW’s awards help women tackle the growing burden of student debt and focus their efforts on the task at hand: developing the skills and experience to excel in their fields and lead innovative community projects to empower women and girls.
Fellowship and grant recipients perform research in a wide range of disciplines and work to improve their schools and communities. Their intellect, dedication, imagination, and effort promise to forge new paths in scholarship, improve the quality of life for all, and tackle the educational and social barriers facing women worldwide.
