American Association of University Women – San Jose scholarships are awarded annually to women who have a permanent home address in Campbell, Milpitas, San Jose, and Santa Clara, California, who have completed two full years of study at an accredited college or university, have a minimum 3.0 GPA and who are enrolled in a four year institution as an undergraduate. Grants are based on the strength of the application and an interview with the Local Scholarship Committee. In 2016 we awarded over $57,000 in scholarships. The number and size of scholarships awarded depend on the funds available.
In principle and practice, AAUW values and seeks diverse membership. There shall be no barriers to full participation in this organization on the basis of gender, race, creed, age, sexual orientation, national origin, disability or class.
