Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.

Program Purpose

The Selected Professions Fellowships program was created in 1970 to support women in graduate and professional degree programs in fields where female participation traditionally has been low. The award amount ranges from $5,000 to $18,000.

Eligibility

AAUW awards Selected Professions Fellowships to women who are citizens or permanent residents of the United States who have achieved high standards of academic excellence and show promise of distinction in their respective fields. Applicants must be full-time students at an accredited U.S. institution during the fellowship year, and should be pursuing a course of study in the United States over the full academic year. Priority is given to women who do not already hold a master’s or first professional degree.
