Career Development Grants are open to women who

  • are U.S. citizens or permanent residents;
  • hold an earned (not honorary) bachelor’s degree;
  • received their bachelor’s degree on or before June 30, 2012;
  • do not hold an earned (not honorary) graduate or professional degree;
  • plan to enroll or are enrolled in courses/activities that are required for professional employment or advancement; and
  • plan to enroll or are enrolled in one of the following:
    • Bachelor’s or associate degree program that is different from the field of study of the previously earned bachelor’s degree
    • Master’s degree program
    • Certification program
    • Technical school
    • Professional degree (e.g., law or medicine)

All courses of study must occur at a regionally accredited two- or four-year college or university in the United States or at a technical school that is fully licensed and/or accredited by the U.S. Department of Education. Applicants must reside within the United States during the grant period.

Distance or online learning programs will be funded only if they are conducted through an accredited institution appearing on the U.S. Department of Education’s list of approved online/distance learning programs. Final decisions about what constitutes distance learning under these grants will be made by AAUW.

Applicants are required to indicate their matriculation status within the application. While applicants are not required to already be enrolled or accepted into their preferred institution of study in order to apply, preference is given to those who are able to demonstrate strong commitment or intent in following the proposed plan of study. Awardees must be able to show proof of admission when submitting their acceptance materials.

Career Development Grant funding is not available for:

  • Prerequisite coursework
  • Doctoral coursework or dissertations

Career Development Grants are not open to previous recipients of any AAUW national fellowship or grant (not including branch or local awards or Community Action Grants). Members and officers of the AAUW Board of Directors are not eligible to apply for fellowships and grant awards. AAUW staff or volunteers with decision-making authority who wish to apply for an award must recuse themselves from the decision-making process.
