American Association of University Women St. George Branch advances equity for women and girls in southern Utah through philanthropy, advocacy, and education. Each year we award scholarships of $1,000-$3,000 each to St. George area women.
Our Scholarship Committee establishes the categories of scholarships and determine the awardees. Scholarship recipients are announced and introduced to the membership at the May luncheon meeting. Sources of funding include our annual Gala, other Branch sponsored fundraisers and private donations.
Our scholarships are available to women who are Utah residents who attend (or are planning to attend) DSU, our eSMART Camp graduates and GED graduates. Starting in 2016, DXATC women students will be considered if they intend to continue at DSU after their certification program. Awards are based on need and ability to finish. A 2.5 GPA is required to apply. Scholarships are awarded to part-time students (minimum 7 hours) and full-time.
Scholarship Applications are accepted starting January 1, 2017 until the first Friday in March for Fall scholarships.
