Founded in 1881, the American Association of University Women (AAUW) has been advocating on behalf of its members for over 125 years. Their work has included developing voter education programs, diversity initiatives in higher education, and hosting the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders. To get some sense of the AAUW's history, visitors may wish to visit their "Online Museum" area, which covers some of their accomplishments over the years. Most visitors will want to visit their "Research" area as well, as it contains links to the full-text of reports like "Behind the Pay Gap" and "Drawing the Line: Sexual Harassment on Campus". Moving on, the "Fellowships, Grants, and Awards" section provides links to a wide range of scholarship opportunities and grants sponsored by the AAUW. The site is rounded out by their "Community Programs" area, which includes information on the National Girls Collaborative Project and their leadership development programs.
