Awards are for low-income families (annual family income less than $20,000 for a family of 2; less than $24,000 for a family of 3; less than $28,000 for a family of 4). 


American Association of University Women (AAUW) Fellowships & Grants (graduate and postdocs)

At AAUW, we’ve led the fight for fair pay and economic opportunity for women—and the battle continues: Women still get just 82 cents for every dollar paid to a man, and men continue to dominate the top roles and highest-paying professions. Though we are nonpartisan, we are not values-neutral: We fight to remove the barriers and biases that stand in the way of gender equity. We train women to negotiate for pay and benefits and to pursue leadership roles. And we advocate for federal, state and local laws and policies to ensure equity and end discrimination. We offer several fellowships and grants, including: American Fellowships ($6,000-$30,000); Career Development Grants ($2,000-$12,000); Community Action Grants ($3,000-$10,000); International Fellowships ($18,000-$30,000); International Project Grants ($5,000-$7,000); Research Publication Grant in Engineering, Medicine and Science ($10,000-$35,000); and Selected Professions Fellowships ($5,000-$18,000). Application portals open August 1.
