Scholarship Opportunity with AAUW

The Fairbanks branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) is offering two $1000 scholarships to local women with plans to reenter or continue their education, or to pursue educational projects. The awards will be based primarily on merit.
Each applicant should write a letter stating her educational background, why she wants to continue her education, her educational goals, her needs, and how she plans to use her education in the future.
If the applicant wishes to pursue an educational project instead of taking formal classes, she should describe the project and tell how she plans to use the award money to complete it.
Entries must be received by March 26, 2010. 
Letters should be sent to:

The AAUW is a nationwide organization open to every person who holds an associate or baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university. The goal of the organization is to promote equity for women and lifelong education.
Money for scholarships is raised by an annual local house tour that is sponsored by the Fairbanks branch of the AAUW.
