AAUW Educational Foundation Accepting Applications for Community Action Grants

Deadline: January 15, 2009

The American Association of University Women (http://www.aauw.org/) Educational Foundation annually provides Community Action Grants to individuals, AAUW branches, and AAUW state organizations as well as local community-based nonprofit organizations for innovative programs or non-degree research projects that promote education and equity for women and girls.

The program provides one-year grants of $2,000 to $7,000 each as seed money for new projects, and two-year grants of $5,000 to $10,000 each as start-up funds for longer-term programs. Special consideration is given to projects focused on K-12 and community college girls’ and women’s achievements in science, technology, engineering, or math.

Applicants must be women who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Nonprofit organizations must be based in the United States, and grant projects must take place within the U.S. or its territories.

See the AAUW Web site for complete program information.
