AAUW Offers College Scholarships
The Anne Arundel County Branch of the American Association of University Women will be offering three one-year financial awards of $2000.00 each for the 2011- 2012 academic year.

Other criteria require eligible applicants be residents of Anne Arundel County, have a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 or higher, and show evidence of financial need and a commitment to community service as demonstrated through volunteer or employment activities.
Scholarship applications are available online at the organization website or from the Financial Aid office at Anne Arundel Community College.
