ADVOCATING FOR EDUCATION, LEADERSHIP & EQUITY FOR WOMEN & GIRLS
AAUW publishes groundbreaking research on women and girls, is one of the world’s largest resources of funding exclusively for graduate women, and fights sex discrimination in all levels of education.
The State College branch of AAUW was founded in 1916 and has approximately 150 members who continually seek ways to work toward improving the lives of all women. Our State College branch has a long history of leadership and community service.
Half a Century of Expanding Access to Education
50 years ago, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 changed the face of education. This groundbreaking civil rights law prohibits sex discrimination in education and protects people of all genders, both staff and students, in any educational institution or program receiving federal funds. Title IX ushered in an era of enormous progress for girls and women from classrooms to playing fields, but advocates continue to fight efforts to weaken it. Join AAUW as we honor five decades of advancing educational equity for all and engage where advocacy is still needed to achieve the full promise of Title IX.
An AAUW State College STEM grant funds scholarships for girls to participate in Science U summer camps.
Returning adult women students receive AAUW State College Branch scholarships in order to complete their college education.
AAUW’s mission is to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research. AAUW State College awards numerous community grants each year to nonprofits located within Centre County that promote our mission. We believe that collaborative community-based initiatives form a robust foundation for advancing equity locally and, ultimately, globally.
