AAUW Flagler proudly reinforces and sustains educational goals for middle and high school students, continuing education professionals, undergraduate and graduate university scholars through an array of grants and scholarships. Since 1987, the branch has awarded 222 scholarships to women and girls from Flagler County.
Through its partnership with the Daytona State College Foundation, and with AAUW branches in Daytona and New Smyrna, AAUW Flagler awards foundation and STEM scholarships. For the past six years, AAUW Flagler has provided 26 Flagler County middle school girls with the opportunity to explore S.T.E.M. through its Tech Trek program. This year, Flagler County will be represented by 6 girls from 3 middle schools.
Recognizing the need to promote the Arts, AAUW Flagler added an “A” to STEM when it began awarding Arts Grants in 2016. Flagler women have attended the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders, held annually at the University of Maryland, since 2013.
Advancing the education of women and girls in Flagler County is the heart of AAUW’s mission and for more than three decades, that mission has been accomplished!
