Apply for Elmhurst Area AAUW scholarships by April 15
Need help continuing your education?
The AAUW Elmhurst Area Branch is offering three scholarships of $3,000 each to women who need financial assistance to continue their education at the undergraduate or graduate level. The applicants must reside in one of the following communities: Elmhurst, Addison, Bensenville, Berkeley, Northlake, Oak Brook, Oakbrook Terrace, or Villa Park.
An applicant may be studying full- or part-time.
Besides being from one of the above communities, the applicant must be continuing her education after completing at least 12 credit hours at an accredited college or university and be age 25 or older.
The mission of the American Association of University Women is to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research at both the national and local levels.
Funds for these scholarships come from the used book sale that AAUW hosts each summer.
The 2022 Used Book Sale was so successful that the organization is pleased to be able to offer three scholarships this year.
Scholarship requirements as well as the application form for the scholarship can be found on the Elmhurst AAUW website: elmhurstarea-il.aauw.net/scholarship/apply/.
The application deadline is Saturday, April 15, 2023.
