Scholarships

Each year AAUW Lock Haven holds a used book sale that raises funds to support college scholarships for women in Clinton County. Both undergraduate and graduate scholarships are available to women who are Clinton County residents either (A) at the time of submitting their applications, or (B) if currently a student, immediately before the start of the current degree program.

Eligible applicants must be:

  • Women in Clinton County with financial need
  • Women enrolled in an undergraduate program (and at least 3 years beyond high school graduation, i.e. a “non-traditional” student)
  • Women enrolled in a graduate program

The graduate scholarship is named in honor of the late Marilyn Gardner, a past President of the Lock Haven AAUW Branch, and past member of the AAUW Pennsylvania Division Executive Board. An applicant for a graduate scholarship must have been accepted at an accredited college or university in a graduate degree program, and must meet the above residency requirement.
