Ask us about Student Leadership Opportunities

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.

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.

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 women for education, research, and community programs.  The Redlands branch raises funds through donations, crafts sales, and events. We support two scholarship efforts:

  • Educational Opportunities Fund (EF formerly the Educational Foundation)
  • Local Scholarships including the Nancy Yowell Memorial Scholarship for local women returning to college, grants for the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL), high school scholarships, and Tech Trek for 7th-grade girls

EF is one of the world’s largest sources of funding for graduate women. In the last academic year, EF provided more than $6 million in funding for more than 285 fellows and grantees 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.
