Local Scholarships

For years, AAUW Las Vegas has awarded scholarships to women attending the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV), Nevada State College, and College of Southern Nevada. Scholarship recipients receive funds as well as a student membership in AAUW Las Vegas and mentoring from branch members.

The Scholarship Committee reviews applications and selects scholarship recipients based on criteria pre-determined by AAUW Las Vegas.

The AAUW Las Vegas Scholarship fund includes proceeds from fundraising events, Bridge tournaments, monthly meetings projects, and individual contributions.

The scholarship year is from July 1 until June 30.

We invite you to participate in our ‘Fun’draisers for local scholarships. For more information about scholarships, the 2016-17 application using the  2015_SCHOLARSHIP_APPLICATION_PACKAGE  *** or to contribute to this fund, please contact:
