Community support plus member volunteer hours result in funds available for investment in important endeavors.  In addition to college scholarships for local women, leadership and science camps for girls, and support for post-doctoral fellowships, this AAUW Branch awards several mini-grants to Walla Walla Valley projects and programs that support the AAUW mission.

Mini-grant applications must demonstrate consideration of AAUW’s mission, be a local project, and provide some recognition and visibility for our AAUW branch. A member committee meets to review applications, makes recommendations to the Board, and then announces grantees at the AAUW May Dinner meeting.
