History of the American Association of University Women

Established in 1881, the American Association of University Women (AAUW) has been one of the nation's leading voices in promoting education and equity for all women and girls, lifelong education, and positive societal change. The AAUW is composed of three corporations:

The Association—with more than 100,000 members, 1,300 branches, and 550 college/university institution partners nationwide (including Puerto Rico)—advocates education and equity. Since its founding in 1881, members have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day—educational, social, economic, and political. Commitment to their mission is reflected in their public policy efforts, programs, and diversity initiatives. AAUW's work extends globally through its international connections and membership in the International Federation of University Women.

The AAUW Educational Foundation is the world's largest source of funding exclusively for graduate women. Each year the Foundation provides about $4 million in fellowships, grants, and awards for outstanding women around the globe and for community action projects. The Foundation also funds pioneering research on women, girls, and education; international symposia; and forums.

The AAUW Legal Advocacy Fund is the nation's largest legal fund focused solely on sex discrimination in higher education. The Legal Advocacy Fund provides funds and a support system for women seeking judicial redress for sex discrimination in higher education.
