AAUW Minneapolis Branch Scholarships


Scholarship Value: $19,000
Awards Available: 9

Annually, the Scholarship Fund of the Minneapolis Branch of AAUW offers two four-year scholarships to young women graduating from a Minneapolis Public High School with a G.P.A. of at least 3.0, a documented financial need and with the goal of attaining a Baccalaureate degree at an accredited institution.

Beginning in 2021, scholarship recipients will receive $4,750 annually. If the scholar is a student in good academic standing at her college or university, the scholarship will be renewed each of the following three years. The maximum that each scholar could receive is $19,000 over 4 years.

Also beginning in 2018, a Named Scholarship, the Nadia Christensen AAUW Minneapolis Scholarship was first awarded. This scholarship has the same criteria as our other scholarships and will be offered only every four years. The amount of this scholarship is ten percent greater than our other scholarships. The Nadia Christensen scholar receives $5,225 annually.

Applications for 2022 are available in the counseling offices of the Minneapolis Public High Schools, or at www.minneapolis-mn.aauw.net Completed applications must be mailed to the AAUW Minneapolis Branch or sent by email to the following address: aauwscholarship@galemansion.com by Friday, February 4, 2022. All nine members of the Scholarship Board read each application to determine the finalists who will be interviewed. The selection criteria are based on grades, financial need, an essay written by the applicant, information from references, and an interview. Finalists are interviewed in late March or early April by three board members. The recipients are notified no later than May 1.
