AAUW to award $1k Scholarship

The scholarship is intended to help ease the burden of college expenses.

The American Association of University Women Medford Branch will award a $1,000 annual scholarship for a non-traditional female college student in May 2017. The scholarship is intended to help ease the burden of college expenses for the recipient.

AAUW awards a scholarship every year to a woman who is returning to or starting college. These non-traditional women may have had to leave college to take care of family but are now ready to work toward a college degree.

To be eligible, the applicant must:

· Be a female resident of Burlington County

· Be a non-traditional student enrolled in an undergraduate degree program. A non-traditional student might be someone whose family obligations required an interruption of several years prior to resuming a college program, or someone who waited until later in life to start college. High school graduates proceeding directly to college are ineligible.

· Take at least one course per semester

· Earn a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0

The Scholarship Committee is accepting scholarship applications through Friday, March 31.

The application form and complete requirements can be found on the web at: http://medford-nj.aauw.net/

The scholarship will be presented at a dinner in May.
