AAUW supports life-long learning opportunities for all women and girls as a means of achieving equity and quality of life improvements.  We work to improve education for all  through our public policy program and priorities and our other advocacy actions.

We also sponsor a number of educational opportunities for women and girls such as local scholarships, grants and conferences, and local and state internships and our STEM programs such as Expanding Your Horizons conferences and Scholar Recognition programs.  Many of our branches sponsor various activities that engage students in their communities.

We welcome college and university affiliations through our Partner Member program, that, among other benefits, offers students at Partner Member institutions the opportunity to become student affiliate members of AAUW.
