AAUW Carlisle branch is pleased to offer scholarships to women of Cumberland or Perry County, Pennsylvania pursuing a higher education degree. Applicants must be female residents of Cumberland or Perry County, PA, for at least a year, have successfully completed at least one year of college, demonstrate financial need, and be enrolled in an educational program that, upon completion, confers an associate (or other equivalent degrees, e.g. RN), bachelor or higher degree from a regionally accredited college, university, or institute. Past recipients have included non-traditional students, women in doctoral programs, associate degree and nursing programs as well as those in bachelor degree programs.
Applicants will need to be able to attend an interview in Carlisle (or via Zoom if precautions are still in place), where each recipient will be required to attend an annual scholarship banquet and give an acceptance speech outlining her educational and career goals to AAUW members and receive their award. Recipients must agree to allow AAUW Carlisle Branch to use her name, picture, and/or biographical information for publication.
