Local Scholarships

Proceeds from the annual used book sale go to local and national scholarships and to local education projects of merit.  AAUW Brevard funds scholarships each year for women in Transylvania County attending Brevard College or Blue Ridge Community College.  Summer scholarships are awarded to  Transylvania County middle school girls for the Green River Science Camp and for the WISE program held at Clemson University and taught by science and engineering professors.

Endowment

In addition the Branch has established an endowment at Blue Ridge Community College.  A gift of any size can be made in honor or memory of Brevard Branch AAUW members, past and present, or anyone else.  The Tribute Program offers a thoughtful way to make a gift that you can be sure will be appreciated by the honoree or their family.  The funds will be used to award scholarships, in perpetuity, to Transylvania County women attending Blue Ridge Community College.  Please click on the following link to view/print the endowment form and instructions on where to send a gift or memorial.                     Endowment Form
