Opportunity Description

The American Association of University Women (AAUW) is the nation’s foremost advocate for women’s and girls’ equity and education. Since its inception in 1881, AAUW members have analyzed and taken positions on the most pressing concerns of the day, including educational, social, economic, and political challenges.
Applications are open for AAUW Career Development Grants. Women with a bachelor’s degree who want to develop or change jobs or re-enter the workforce in education, health, and medical sciences or social sciences can apply for Career Development Grants. AAUW created Career Development Grants in 1972 to provide “encouragement” funds to AAUW members who wanted to renew or restart academic studies for credit toward career or employment progress. Grants now fund courses beyond a bachelor’s degree, such as a master’s degree, a second bachelor’s degree, a certification program, or advanced training in technical or professional disciplines. Coursework must be completed in a recognized two- or four-year college or university in the United States or at a fully licensed or accredited technical school by the United States Department of Education. There are no funds available for doctoral-level research.
