LAF Campus Outreach Program Grant

Few college students are prepared for the reality of unfair pay, sexual harassment and assault, pregnancy discrimination, or Title IX violations, yet these issues affect many young people on campus or later in the workplace. AAUW members can apply for up to $750 in funding to host or co-host an event to educate students about these topics.


Send the Funding Request Form to: or fax: 202.463.7169.

Requests are accepted on a rolling basis.

Please note: We are no longer accepting LAF Campus Outreach Program Grant applications for $tart $mart trainings during the 2013–14 school year.


AAUW Branches and College Campuses Forge Relationships

The Campus Outreach Program Grant is a wonderful opportunity for AAUW branches to create relationships with local campuses. In 2012, the AAUW Wheaton-Glen Ellyn (IL) Branch used an LAF Campus Outreach Grant to participate in a fair focused on sexual abuse awareness at the College of DuPage. AAUW member Sue Hermann said:


β€œThe fair was a big success … Attendees took information about how to join AAUW and apply for AAUW local and national scholarships. As a result of our participation, the College of DuPage has agreed to sponsor an information night next year, which our branch will host, titled Title IX Compliance: How the College of DuPage Responds to Sexual Harassment and Violence on Campus.”
