Scholarship Opportunity From AAUW Easton Branch

The American Association of University Women-Easton Branch is pleased to announce the opportunity for a 2012 Mature Woman’s Grant to females age 25 and over who are residents of one of these Maryland counties: Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s or Talbot.

The intention of this grant is to assist women who are returning to complete their college education, who are pursuing further graduate studies, or who are applying for a certificate program to enter a new career path and would benefit from some extra financial assistance in accomplishing their goal. The amount of the grant is still to be determined; last year, the AAUW-Easton Branch awarded three $500 grants.

Applications for this AAUW 2012 Mature Woman’s Grant can be found at local libraries in the five-county region, at Chesapeake College, Salisbury University, University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Wicomico Community College, Washington College or electronically by request at

The deadline for submission, postmarked or e-mailed, is June 1, 2012. Applicants will be notified during July and August. The grants will be awarded officially at the September dinner meeting of the AAUW-Easton Branch.
