In 1920, three branch members established a student loan fund. By 1965, that loan fund had evolved into the scholarship fund.
Today AAUW-Great Falls funds two types of scholarships for Cascade County Women.
The Nontraditional Scholarship is for a woman whose formal education has been interrupted whether before or after finishing secondary school. The Nontraditional Scholarship is given to students who are pursuing a two year degree. These scholarships are awarded during the Holiday Luncheon in December.
