AAUW Accepting Applications for Community Action Grants

One of the world’s largest sources of funding exclusively for graduate women, the American Association of University Women (www.aauw.org) Educational Foundation supports aspiring scholars around the globe, teachers and activists in local communities, women at critical stages of their careers, and those pursuing professions where women are underrepresented. In 2007-08, the foundation’s Community Action Grants program will award one- and two-year grants. One-year grants ($2,000 to $7,000) provide seed money for new projects. Topic areas are unrestricted, but should include a clearly defined activity that promotes education and equity for women and girls. Two-year grants ($5,000 to $10,000) provide start-up funds for longer-term programs that address the particular needs of the community and develop girls’ sense of efficacy through leadership or advocacy opportunities. Topic areas are unrestricted, but should include a clearly defined activity that promotes education and equity for women and girls. Applicants must be women who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Grant projects must have direct public impact, be nonpartisan, and take place within the United States or its territories. Visit the AAUW Educational Foundation Web site for complete program information, application procedures, and the database of school and community projects for women and girls that highlights promising practices, exemplary materials, and lessons learned from the Foundation’s Community Action Grants. the deadline for applications is January 15, 2007.
