The AAUW Alumnae Recognition Award honors a past recipient of an AAUW fellowship or grant who has attained outstanding success and distinction in her chosen profession.
AAUW's Eleanor Roosevelt Fund Award honors an individual, project, organization or institution for outstanding contributions to equality and education for women and girls.
The AAUW Women of Distinction program pays tribute to women leaders who have made extraordinary accomplishments in their professions or their communities.
