Introducing AAUW Leadership Programs
The Leadership Programs Fund is the newest and arguably the most
exciting of all the AAUW Funds. It provides various kinds of leadership
training for young women. Women taking leadership positions in their
communities and in the larger arena fulfills AAUW's mission and also
provides a solid prospective membership for our organization.
Here are several of the programs funded by the fund:
Elect Her-Campus Women Win trains young women to run for student
government on their campuses.
$tart $mart salary negotiation workshops teaches college women
entering the job market how to negotiate a fair salary.
Campus Action Projects enable student leaders and campus faculty
to design and carry out programs that implement AAUW's current research.
Here in California the Gloria Weston Campus Outreach Fund provides
similar programs for California campuses.
National Conference for College Women Student Leaders has just
concluded its twenty-sixth annual two and a half day meeting which
offered over 500 women student leaders opportunities to home their
National Student Advisory Council members advise AAUW staff
about student needs, contribute ideas for combating sex discrimination
in higher education and the workplace, promote AAUW's programs and
participate in the National Conference for College Women Student
These programs and others in the fund are not endowed. That means that
unlike fellowships and R&P grants they are not funded from the interest
earned on the completed fellowships and grants but rather must depend on
donations by members, AAUW states and branches and corporations.
