The American Association of University Women (AAUW) advances equity for women and girls.
So, the Lombard Area Branch of AAUW “Return to Learning” scholarship has the aim to help an undergraduate or master’s degree, or certification program students, especially females.
The selection criteria will be based on the following:

- Strong academics
- Financial need
- STEM field of study (Science, Technology, Engineering or Math)
- Employment and activities
- Current letter of recommendation from one professional contact
