Local American Association of University Women to award scholarships

MARTINEZ, Calif. – The American Association of University Women (AAUW), is a national organization which advances the equity for all women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research. The Pleasant Hill-Martinez branch gives college scholarships to students from our local high schools.

Four scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each will be given to women graduating from College Park or Alhambra High Schools in June 2017. Applicants will be evaluated on the basis of scholarship, educational goals, financial need, campus or community involvement and letters of recommendation.

Completed scholarship applications must be received by Monday, April 10. Applications are available from the counselor’s offices or may be downloaded from the Pleasant Hill-Martinez AAUW website at www.aauw-pleasanthill-martinez.org.
