AAUW women have been passionate about careers in science, technology, engineering, and math since our inception, and we have always supported trailblazing women. That’s why, in 1920, AAUW helped raise the $100,000 necessary for Marie Curie to purchase a gram of radium to keep her work alive. Members were there in New York City as Curie kicked off a triumphant tour of the United States to raise the funds. And now members will go to Curie’s hometown, Warsaw, to learn more about what life is like for Polish women.

Why Warsaw?

We have a unique opportunity to tour this glorious city and the places that were important in Curie’s early childhood, as well as institutions founded on her body of work. The architecture of imperial Poland, its rich culture, and the warmth of its people make Warsaw a wonderful destination for our delegation efforts.

Why an AAUW delegation?

This tour has been custom made for AAUW members with your interests in mind by one of the industry’s leading travel planners, Professionals Abroad. They will ensure that you leave Poland knowing its history, culture, and people and that you’ll have a new appreciation for this lovely country. You’ll also have the option to extend your trip in Paris, where Curie spent her career.
