Applicants must be legal residents of Windward Oahu, enrolled in or accepted for admission at a regionally accredited post-secondary institution in the state of Hawaii and have not previously earned a baccalaureate degree.  Applicants must be enrolled in a classified degree program.  Selection will be made on academic potential and need as determined by the Educational Grants Committee of AAUW Windward Oahu Branch.

The applicant must submit:

1.  Completed educational grant application.

2.  A type-written statement which addresses all three of the following:  (a) applicant’s educational and career goals, (b) why applicant believes she should be awarded a grant from the Windward Branch of AAUW and (c) why the applicant chose the college that she will attend.
