Scholarships for 2016 female high school graduates and for adult women returning to school

Since our founding over thirty years ago, the American Association of University Women (AAUW) of the Gloucester County Area has offered scholarships in the amounts of $250 – $1000 to young women graduating from an area high school.  Some years ago we began awarding additional scholarships to adult women returning to school.  In 2016 we will award three scholarships of $1,000 each.
