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 Traditional Scholarship is given to female Cascade County residents who are juniors, seniors and graduatestudents. The scholarships will be awarded during the Spring Luncheon.
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. Applications for the 2015 year will be available in Fall of 2014.
