AAUW student organization
At more than 100 colleges and universities around the world, AAUW student organizations are demanding equity for women and girls. AAUW student organizations receive free resources and support to create campus programming around women’s issues. AAUW Redlands is hopeful to have our first local AAUW student organization at the University of Redlands.

Campus Action Projects are annual, grant-funded, student-led projects that allow students to take action on women’s issues on campus. Applications are due October 2, 2017, check it out at

Give a Grad a Gift program – As an AAUW member, you can give one year of national membership free to as many recent graduates at no cost to them or to you. This is a great way to introduce young women to AAUW.

National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL) unites college women from across the country to address important leadership issues of the day. Attendees have transformative experiences that inspire them to improve their campuses and their communities.

AAUW Redlands partially sponsors two students to NCCWSL each year. Watch the aauw.org website for details of the 2018 conference, expected to be in May or early June at the University of Maryland campus.

Start Smart salary negotiation workshop is an AAUW program to teach students how to negotiate the starting salaries they deserve. The workshop is taught by local AAUW trained facilitators at our college campuses.

AAUW Redlands provides fellowships and grants to woman for education, research and community programs.  The Redlands branch raises funds through donations, an annual theater party, crafts sales, and events (see below). We support two scholarship efforts:

  • Educational Opportunities Fund (EF formerly the Educational Foundation)
  • Local Scholarships for women going to local colleges (click here for more information)

EF is one of the world’s largest sources of funding for graduate women. In the 2012-13 academic year, EF provided more than $4.3 million in funding for more than 278 fellowships and grants to outstanding women and nonprofit organizations. Fellowship and grant recipients perform research in a wide range of disciplines and work to improve their schools and communities. Their intellect, dedication, imagination, and effort promise to forge new paths in scholarship, improve the quality of life for all, and tackle the educational and social barriers facing women in the United States and around the globe.
