Meet Portland State University's AAUW Fellowship and Grants Recipients
Our AAUW Funds contributions were visibly returned to our community during the 2022-23 academic year. Rarely can an institution claim even one recipient in a year, but PSU has three! Aiding promising women to excel in their fields and to become leaders in business, government, academia, community activism, the arts, and sciences, can make a huge impact.
AAUW of Portland actively participates in fundraising for our scholarship endowment at Portland Community College. Our local scholarship is administered by the PCC Foundation and goes to a returning student in the STEM field, who demonstrably supports the mission of AAUW, and with plans to transfer to a 4-year institution.
All Portland Branch scholarships and grants are given through the PCC Foundation or through AAUW National, according to the policies and guidelines of those organizations. To see if you qualify, please go to PCC Foundationor to AAUW Fellowships and Grants.
