They are tenacious and trailblazing — advocating for women and girls since 1881 and into the future. AAUW’s story when a small group of female college graduates banded together to open the doors for women’s career advancement and to encourage more women to pursue higher education..

About the Grant:
Having a strong publication record is a key to receiving promotions and tenure in engineering, medicine and science. Yet persistent gender stereotypes and bias in these fields can make it difficult for women to find the time and institutional support needed to publish their research. These grants help women overcome these barriers by funding research projects that will culminate in scholarly publications. They are open to women scholars conducting basic research in engineering, medicine or the physical or biological sciences and who have a doctorate degree in one of those fields. The grantee must publish their research in a scholarly publication and be listed as a primary author.
Grant Amount: $10,000-$35,000
