Wooster AAUW Accepting Scholarship Applications

Wooster AAUW Accepting Scholarship Applications

The goal of the national American Association of University Women (AAUW) is to ad-vance equity and empower women. The Wooster Branch of AAUW is now accepting applications for their 2020 AAUW Scholarship Program. This scholarship aims to help women who are not recent high school graduates, but wish to complete or begin a two or four year academic program. In 2019, the group awarded scholarships to four women working on degrees in Nursing, Medical Sonography, Business Organiza-tion/Supervision and Pre-law.

The Wooster AAUW Scholarship is available to Wayne County women whose post-secondary education was interrupted by financial or family issues. It is for non-traditional students enrolled or planning to enroll in a qualified, accredited undergraduate Associate’s or Bachelor’s Degree program. It is not for students coming directly out of high school or for those pursuing a graduate degree.

Funding for the AAUW Scholarship Program is partially provided by the annual AAUW & Kiwanis used book sale held every year in the fall. Awards, based on need and avail-able funds, range from $500 to $2,500. Awards can be used for tuition and fees re-quired for enrollment and for fees, books, supplies or equipment directly required for the course of study. Awards can not be used for room and board. Prior recipients are eligi-ble to reapply. The number of renewals is at the discretion of the committee.

The deadline for applications is May 1, 2020. The scholarship application and instruc-tions for applying are available on the Wooster Branch of AAUW website (www.wooster-oh.aauw.net) or on the Wayne County Community Foundation website: www.waynecountycommunityfoundation.org. Scholarship recipients will be notified by June 15, 2020 and funds will be distributed after July 1, 2020.
