One-Year Grant: $2,000 - $7,000 over one yearOne-year grants provide funding for community-based projects. Topic areas are unrestricted but should include a clearly defined activity that advances equity for women and girls.
Two-Year Grant: $5,000 - $10,000 over two yearsTwo-year grants provide start-up funds for new projects that address the particular needs of the community and develop girls’ sense of efficacy through leadership, advocacy, or training opportunities. Funds support planning activities, coalition building, implementation and evaluation. The application is for one grant that covers a two-year period. AAUW expects that the project may evolve and change somewhat over the course of the grant period, however, second year funding is contingent upon the successful completion of the first year of the grant. Two-year grants are not for existing projects.
