Support AAUW Ashland Scholarship Funds

Our scholarship funds help women in our community reach their educational and life goals by attending Southern Oregon University (SOU) or Rogue Community College (RCC). AAUW Ashland has established two funds at each institution; SOU Annual Fund or SOU Endowment Fund and the RCC Annual Fund or RCC Endowment Fund. Gifts to the Annual Fund are distributed within a given year and gifts to the endowment funds are added to a managed fund that grows in perpetuity – only the interest earned is dispersed annually. See below for how to give.
