We’ve led the fight for fair pay and economic opportunity for women — and the battle continues: Women still get just 83 cents for every dollar paid to a man, and men continue to dominate the top roles and highest-paying professions. AAUW has awarded over $135 million in fellowships and grants to more than 13,000 scholars and organizations in 50 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and Gaum and 150 countries, one of the largest scholarship programs for women in the world.
To support the continuation of fellows' work after they return home, AAUW awards AAUW International Project Grants that benefit women and girls in the fellow's home country. The applicant must have successfully completed an AAUW International Fellowship, all reporting requirements for the fellowship, and the academic program for which they received the fellowship by June 30 and be a citizen of a country other than the United States. The project must be implemented in the applicant's home country and have a direct, positive impact on women and girls.
