Community Action Grant for Needs of Women and Girls

Posted on October 9, 2017

AAUW’s Community Action Grants provide funds that address issues related to the needs of women and girls or that provide information to educate and benefit the public on those issues.

AAUW encourages proposals for projects that

  • Use innovative approaches to address local community needs or build links among community partners
  • Build partnerships between schools and community organizations

Special consideration is given to

  • Projects directed by or collaborating with AAUW branches and states
  • Projects focused on K–14 (including two-year colleges) women and girls’ achievement in math, science, and/or technology
  • Projects that include community partners (Community partners might include local schools or school districts, businesses, and other community-based organizations.)
