Applicants must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 or more and must plan to attend the University of Northern Iowa, Hawkeye Community College or Allen College during the 2020-2021 academic year. Priority may be given to applicants who show greatest financial need, who reside in Benton, Black Hawk, Bremer, Buchanan, Butler, Fayette, Grundy or Tama County and who are majoring in a non-traditional field of study.
The Scholarship Committee includes Marilyn Drury (chair), Linda Morgan, Nancy Henderson, and JoAnn DeVries.
The 2020 Scholarship recipients are Sarah Miller, Stephanie Leon, and Olivia Charley.
$1500 award to Sarah Miller from Waterloo. Sarah attended UNI last fall and is currently at Hawkeye Community College. She is planning to go to Allen College next year and pursue radiology.
$1500 award to Stephanie Leon from Waterloo. Stephanie has attended Hawkeye this past year and plans to transfer to UNI to pursue a teaching degree.
$750 award to Olivia Charley from Reinbeck. Olivia has attended Hawkeye and UNI in the past and is currently at Allen College pursuing a BSN. She will graduate in December. Due to her volunteerism and financial need throughout her education, we are making an exception from the guideline of sophomore status.
We look forward to introducing our members to these young women at our next AAUW gathering so you can learn more about each of them and welcome them to our organization.
