AAUW International Fellowships for Masters PhD and Postdoc Students in USA 2022

AAUW in Washington DC in the USA invites applications for the International Fellowships open to master’s, doctoral and postdoctoral applicants with citizenship in a country other than the U.S for the 2022/23 academic year.
AAUW’s International Fellowship program has been in existence since 1917. The program provides support for women pursuing full-time graduate or postdoctoral studies in the U.S. who are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents. A limited number of awards are available for study outside of the U.S. (excluding the applicant’s home country) to women who are members of Graduate Women International (see the list of GWI affiliates). Preference is given to women who show prior commitment to the advancement of women and girls through civic, community, or professional work.
Up to five International Fellowships for master’s/first professional degrees will be renewable for a second year; fellows will receive application information for this competitive program during their fellowship year.
