American Association of University Women (AAUW)
Selected Professions Fellowships

AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, and research. AAUW breaks through educational and economic barriers so that all women have a fair chance.

The Selected Professions Fellowships Program was created in 1970 to support women in professional degree programs in fields where female participation traditionally has been low.

Award Information:
The Selected Professions Fellowship stipends range from $5,000 to $18,000. Requests that do not fall within this stipend range will be ineligible. Stipends are awarded in two equal payments. These fellowships fund academic and living expenses including tuition, fees, books, supplies, and local transportation for the degree candidate.

AAUW awards fellowships in categories to women who are citizens or permanent residents of the United States who have achieved high standards of academic excellence and show promise of distinction in their respective fields. There are no restrictions on an applicant’s age or institution of study within the United States. Applicants must be full-time students at an accredited U.S. institution during the fellowship year, and should be pursuing a course of study in the U.S. over the full academic year.

Application Deadline: January 10, 2010, 5pm, central time
