Branch Project Grants

Branch Project Grants Report- Summer 2015

AAUW-NM has budgeted $600 for the 2015-16 fiscal year to be used for grants to branches. These grants are intended to help the branch finance projects that advance the mission of AAUW. The only requirement for applying for a branch project grant is that the project must have an outreach, educational or mentoring component. While new programs will be given special consideration, established projects are also eligible.

The maximum amount that can be requested by a branch is $200. Please understand that a branch may ask for LESS than $200! Also, if there are several worthy projects submitted, a branch may not receive the full amount requested.

Applications for the Branch Project Grants are due to Shelley Rossbach no later than October 8th. A committee will review the applications and the grants will be awarded at the Fall Workshop on October 24th.  There is no formal application form; the instructions are in the AAUW-NM Policies and Procedures, Article V, section F.

It is preferred that the applications be submitted electronically, but snail mail requests will certainly be accepted.

Please consider requesting a “Branch Project Grant” to aid your branch in advancing the goals of AAUW!
