AAUW full application pkg 2017

Our branch is pleased to annually give Nancy Yowell Memorial Scholarships to local “re-entry women” — women who have had their higher education interrupted but have returned to earn their Associate’s Degrees, Bachelor’s Degrees or Post Graduate Degrees.

Funds for the scholarships are raised through special projects sponsored and manned by members of the Scholarship Committee, and by donations from our membership at large.

“Local Scholarships” was renamed “Nancy Yowell Memorial Scholarships” in 2012 to honor an AAUW member who put her heart and soul into the organization and fundraising for these scholarships.

For more information about scholarships or to donate, please contact Rosa Gomez and Jan Jacobsen. You can also email

The 2017 NYM scholarships have been awarded.  We will begin accepting applications for the 2018 scholarships in the late fall.  All applications received by Feb 1 will be considered:     AAUW full application pkg.
