Silver Jubilee Scholarship Fund


Mary Suter, Silver Jubilee Coordinator, with Sherrie & Norman Berger

AAUW-SF will offer scholarships of $2,000 each to help upper division and graduate school women complete their final year of study in an accredited college or university for the school year 2014-2015. Candidates must live or be attending a university or college within a 100 mile distance of San Francisco and be on track to complete their course of study by June 2015. There is no restriction on the use of the funds. Completed applications are due by April 30, 2014.

If you are interested, or have friends or relatives who may benefit from the scholarship, please check the Silver Jubilee Fund information posted below on this web page.

The Silver Jubilee Scholarship Fund was established in 1916 to celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the founding of the San Francisco branch of the American Association of University Women. The San Francisco branch, founded by Sarah Dix Hamlin, is the second oldest in the United States, and has pioneered the role of women in California education.

Promoting higher education is a major goal of AAUW. The Silver Jubilee Scholarship Fund has assisted our branch in meeting this goal. Through the years, many AAUW-SF branch members have contributed to the Scholarship Fund. The largest bequest was made in 1982 by Mildred Bickel, and enabled the establishment of the Gordon Bickel Fund. This Fund has allowed the expansion of AAUW-SF's scholarship program.
