Branch Scholarship

In 2019, the AAUW Reno Branch established scholarship that is managed by the Nevada Women’s Fund

This scholarship offers financial assistance to women who are pursuing a degree that will improve their careers, allow for a career change, and/or enable reentry into the workforce. This financial support can be used for any expense that helps the individual attain her identified educational goals. Special circumstances such as barriers or hardships experienced by the applicant will be taken into consideration. Award decisions are to be based on financial need, family situations, and/or educational goals.

We offer two scholarships of $1,500 each to students attending the University of Nevada, Reno or Truckee Meadows Community College.
