Danville-Alamo-Walnut Creek AAUW
Local Scholarship History
The branch has given Local Scholarships for close to 40 years. Funds have been raised in a variety of "fun"
endeavors: auctions, garage sales, crab
feeds and in recent years the annual Holiday Home Tour (HHT). Scholarships are offered to local women. In support of the AAUW mission awards are
granted to females, but are otherwise granted without regard to age, race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, disability or natural origin.
Applicant must be a U.S. Citizen. Scholarship recipients are selected on a competitive basis with consideration of the applicant's academic record,
leadership, participation in school and community activities, honors, awards, work experience, educational and career goals and letters of
recommendation. Recipients will receive a minimum scholarship of $2,000 or greater. The branch has awarded close to $100,000.00 in Local Scholarships.
