Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsorship opportunities are available throughout the country in a variety of programmatic areas and giving levels. Sponsorship can be made by branches, states, or individuals and named in honor or in memory. Contact the Development team to learn about programs in your area.

Campus Action Projects (CAP)

$5,000 to sponsor

These grants enable student leaders and faculty to design and implement programs that put AAUW’s research into practice. Each year, 10 recipients from across the country are awarded funds for semester-long projects based on AAUW’s most recent research report. The small scale encourages recipients to keep sponsors updated throughout the process, and each group selects one student to present the group’s work at the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL).

Elect Her–Campus Women Win

$5,000 to sponsor a workshop

Elect Her–Campus Women Win is a one-day training that encourages and trains college women to run for student government and beyond — the only program of its kind in the country! The trainings connect attendees with local politicians and communications experts and provide attendees the chance to work on their campaign messages and practice asking for votes.

Legal Advocacy Fund Case Support Travel Grant

$4,000 to sponsor

This grant enables Legal Advocacy Fund-supported plaintiffs, their lawyers, and related experts to speak at state meetings or conventions about sex discrimination issues in the workplace and in higher education.

National Student Advisory Council

$2,500 to sponsor a National Student Advisory Council member

From October to June, National Student Advisory Council (SAC) members serve as AAUW ambassadors who provide AAUW staff with essential firsthand accounts of student needs and ideas for combating sex discrimination in higher education and the workplace, promoting AAUW and its programs on their campuses, contributing to AAUW Dialog, and serving as student leaders at the annual National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL), held in June in College Park, Maryland.

Serving on the SAC provides members with many opportunities to represent the voices and experiences of college students, develop as leaders, network, and gain valuable résumé-building experience while learning more about one of the largest women’s organizations in the world.
