Scholarships

Each year AAUW Lock Haven holds a used book sale that raises funds to support college scholarships for women in Clinton and Lycoming Counties. Both undergraduate and graduate scholarships are available to women who are Clinton or Lycoming 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 or Lycoming Counties with financial need
  • Women enrolled in an undergraduate or 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.

Unfortunately, due to the cancellation of our May 2020 book sale, due to COVID-19, we were unable to award any scholarships for 2020.  If you would like to make a donation to the branch to go toward future scholarships, please contact our financial officer, Katie Ely at kje341@lockhaven.edu.

In 2018-19, the Lock Haven branch of AAUW also began awarding a Study Abroad Scholarship to a woman student enrolled at Lock Haven University.
