  • AAUW—with more than 170,000 members and supporters, 1,000 branches, and 800 college/university institution partners nationwide—advocates education and equity. Since its founding in 1881, members have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day—educational, social, economic, and political. Our commitment to our mission is reflected in our public policy efforts, programs, and diversity initiatives.
  • The AAUW Educational Foundation is the world’s largest source of funding exclusively for graduate women. Each year the Foundation provides about $4 million in fellowships, grants, and awards for outstanding women around the globe and for community action projects. The Foundation also funds pioneering research on women, girls, and education; international symposia; and forums.
  • The AAUW Legal Advocacy Fund is the nation’s largest legal fund focused solely on sex discrimination. The Legal Advocacy Fund provides funds and a support system for women seeking judicial redress for sex discrimination in the workplace.
