‘AAUW: Supporting Women & Girls with Scholarships & Fellowships’
The Del Mar-Leucadia Branch of the American Association of University Women presented “AAUW: Supporting Women & Girls with Scholarships & Fellowships” at its Jan. 10 meeting held at the Encinitas Community Center.
Two women told their personal stories of how their AAUW fellowship or scholarship affected their education and goals. Andrea Miller is a recipient of the American Association of University Women, Del Mar-Leucadia Branch Endowed Scholarship (Osher) for a nursing major at Mira Costa College. After earning her RN in May 2015, Miller plans to transfer to Cal State San Marcos for its 14-month program to complete a BS in nursing. Her goal is to work as a nurse in labor and delivery.
Pari Rosen received a national AAUW fellowship grant when she was working on her Ph.D. at Louisiana State University. She is a micropaleontologist who has worked both domestically and internationally.
