My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for AAUW, Washington, DC, USA
I was honored to be a recipient of the AAUW's prestigious Education Fellowship. Having this fellowship provided financial support for finishing my doctoral research on what undermines women from sustaining physical activity motivation and participation. The year I had the fellowship, I traveled around my state and spoke to a handful of local AAUW groups to share my dissertation findings.
The dedication and passion that AAUW members have was evident and I enjoyed learning more about AAUW in the process.
One thing I did learn that was concerning to me was that most college-aged women I spoke to at my university had never heard about the AAUW.
My hope for AAUW is that they are able to hook into the younger generation on college campuses to further strengthen the group.
My research, partially funded by the AAUW, has been a platform for my professional success! I feel very fortunate.
