AAUW Graduate Fellowships

About the AAUW Graduate Fellowships

The American Association of University Women (AAUW) offers a variety of fellowships, grants, and awards to women pursuing graduate education. AAUW fellowship funding helps women manage the growing burden of student debt, an issue that disproportionately affects women. Unique to AAUW’s program, funding may also be used to pay for expenses outside of those traditionally associated with academic study, including child care and transportation — necessities that can help recipients’ continue, return to, and successfully complete graduate programs. AAUW prides itself on providing fellowships and grants for women returning to either extend or complete their academic goals.
