AAUW FLORIDA BRADENTON BRANCH
The purpose of AAUW is to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.
Each year we sponsor Reading is Fundamental Programs at an elementary school in Manatee County. Four times a year we read to the children in the 2nd & 3rd grades, provide snacks, and give every child a book to keep.
Our scholarship foundation offers scholarships to Manatee County residents 25 years and up who have completed at least 60 credit hours toward a BA or BS degree and can demonstrate a need for financial aid.
We also support Just for Girls with various items and some financial support.

Reading is Fundamental (RIF) is a
government-sponsored project in which volunteers go into local schools to read
to 2nd and 3rd grade students and give them books to take home. Often these are the first
books the students have ever owned. This year the branch will be at Rodger
Elementary School on January 18th, March 27th and May 8th.
Volunteers are asked to bring1 dozen cookies with them when they volunteer.
Scholarships will be at
least $1000 dollars per semester for full time students and $500 per semester
for part time students. Aid for the second semester will be contingent on the
recipient's maintenance of a 3.0 cumulative grade point average and continuance
of class loads.
