IRON MOUNTAIN — American Association of University Women Iron Mountain-Kingsford Branch is accepting applications for its Non-Traditional Scholarship.
AAUW is an organization whose mission is to promote equality for all women and girls, lifelong education, and positive societal change.
In support of this mission, the Iron Mountain-Kingsford Branch of AAUW is offering the Non-Traditional Scholarship to local women who are 22 years of age or older that are pursuing a certificate program, an associate’s degree, or a bachelor’s degree program in the fall.

These items must be included with the application in order to be considered for the scholarship: a letter of school acceptance or copy of the fall schedule; and an essay.
