In 1934, AAUW Austin Branch established an endowment fund to provide fellowships to female doctoral candidates at The University of Texas at Austin. Contributions were made to this fund over a period of years, until the endowment reached sufficient size to support awarding of annual fellowships. Beginning with the 1985-1986 academic year, sixty-four (64) women have received fellowships from our branch, to financially assist them in completing the final year of their doctoral studies.
For the 2013-2014 academic year, AAUW Austin Branch will award 2-4 fellowships, each in the amount of at least $2000, to female doctoral candidates at The University of Texas at Austin. The only eligibility requirements are (1) formal admission to doctoral candidacy at The University of Texas at Austin, and (2) cumulative graduate school grade point average of 3.5 or better. Women pursuing doctoral studies in all fields are encouraged to apply. Both USA citizens and non-citizens are eligible.
Application deadline: Monday, April 1, 2013 (extension) no later than 5:00 PM CST.
