What do you think college students should know about gender equity? That Title IX prohibits gender-based discrimination on campus? Which federal laws protect them from sexual harassment in the workplace? How other women have addressed and navigated discrimination in their careers?

Campus Outreach Grants provide up to $750 in funding for AAUW branches or student organizations to host on-campus events that help teach college students about gender equity issues and the civil rights laws that protect against gender-based discrimination. Designed to connect campus communities with AAUW’s work, the grants may be used to support campus programs that are hosted or co-hosted by AAUW branches, AAUW student organizations, and Younger Women’s Task Force (YWTF) chapters. A Campus Outreach Grant is a great opportunity for AAUW branches to work with local campuses and for AAUW student organizations to increase their reach.

Few college students are prepared for the reality of unfair pay, sexual harassment and assault, pregnancy discrimination, or Title IX violations. You can help change that. If you’re unsure of where to start, consider using a Campus Outreach Grant to
