Our annual scholarship fundraiser occurs on March 2017. Reminiscent of the very first meeting of university women back in 1881 when it all got started, this is a Tea with savories and sweets and, of course, tea – also coffee and occasionally lemonade. We also have a speaker of local interest in addition to meeting some of our former scholarship recipients.
The Anacortes Branch of the American Association of University Women is offering a $2000.00 and a $1000 scholarship to women who are continuing an undergraduate degree program, a vocational certification program, or taking courses beyond the undergraduate level in preparation for an advanced degree. The woman must either be an Anacortes High School Graduate or have resided on Fidalgo Island or Guemes Island for the last three years. Previous applicants and recipients of AAUW scholarships may apply.
