AAUW-OML Scholarships and Awards

The Orinda-Moraga-Lafayette branch of AAUW offers:

  • A $5000 scholarship and two $800 runners-up scholarships to senior women from the local high schools: Miramonte in Orinda, Campolindo in Moraga, and Acalanes in Lafayette
  • A $5000 scholarship to one senior woman from Saint Mary’s College in Moraga

If you have questions, please contact the scholarship coordinators.

The AAUW is dedicated to making a positive impact on our local and global community by promoting education, empowering women and girls, and by supporting personal and professional growth. Candidates should have demonstrated their commitment to our ideal. Recipients will receive recognition at the AAUW-OML Awards Celebration in April. Awardees will be expected to attend the meeting and give a brief speech about their accomplishments and aspirations. Scholarship checks are issued after proof of college registration is provided.

If you share our vision, have an excellent academic record (3.0 or better) and have been involved in service to your school and/or community, we invite you to apply. Or if you know a graduating high school senior who fulfills the scholarship criteria, please encourage her to apply.

Please read the instructions attached to the forms and fill out either the high school or the Saint Mary’s College application form. (The high school and the Saint Mary’s College application forms are also available in .docx file format.) A hard copy may also be obtained from the Career Centers at the high schools.
