Scholarships

AAUW Capital Branch offers up to four scholarships each year. Two scholarships are offered to a female student graduating from Carson High School, Pioneer High School, Silver State Charter High School and Dayton High School. Each must be planning to attend a 4-year accredited Nevada University or college or a 2-year accredited Nevada college.

Selection is based on academic achievement, career goals, activities, community involvement and financial need. Two scholarships are offered to female students at Western Nevada College. One is offered to a returning student of urgent need. She must have been out of school for at least two years (having previously attended WNC or another college for at least one semester), have a post-secondary GPA of at least 3.0, and be enrolled in at least 12 units. The second scholarship is offered to a single mother of moderate need who is a returning student with a post-secondary GPA of at least 3.0, and be enrolled in at least 6 units.

Scholarships are funded by proceeds from the annual Pecan Sales and The Feast of Chocolate.
