Equity and equal opportunity for women and girls are central to AAUW’s mission, both nationally and in our branch. Through our branch’s Charitable Foundation, we fund the Doris Karlik Local Scholarships for Palm Beach County women who will begin or are completing their undergraduate educations. We also sponsor a local student to attend AAUW’s annual National Conference of College Women Student Leaders, held in Maryland.
Our branch also presents the Benjamin School Junior Girl Award to a young student the school chooses for outstanding performance.
The Benjamin School presentation is typically scheduled for our September meeting. Scholarship winners and the NCCWSL attendee are honored at our annual May installation of officers dinner.
