Twenty years ago, branch member Lydia Brown left a bequest of $7,000 to the branch to help “worthy graduate women at CU.” Since then, AAUW members Elizabeth Ricketts and Berny Udick have added gifts to the grant fund. Each year, the Boulder Branch provides several monetary awards from the interest from this endowment to University of Colorado graduate women.
Congratulations to our 2012 Grant winners:
Morgan Hill – Studies Mechanical Engineering and plans to be a biochemical engineer
Ifi Okoye – Studies Computer Science and plans to set up a research lab in Nigeria
Christie Sennott – Studies Sociology and plans to continue doing research projects involving women and HIV/Aids in Africa
All attend the University of Colorado at Boulder.
Summer 2013: Turns out, I was wrong. there will be no BRU grants awarded for 2013. We’re awaiting word on the financial strength of the grant endowment before determining on 2014 grants. My apologies for the inadequate communication, please see the AAUW National Grants and Fellowships, linked below.
Separate from our local grant, AAUW offers Fellowships and Grants on the national level.
