Available since 1917, the AAUW’s International Fellowship programme has strived to provide support for female graduate or postgraduate students looking to further their academic track record in the United States. The applicants must be non-US citizens or permanent residents. Candidates who have shown prior commitment to the advancement of women and girls rights through civic, community or professional work are favoured over other candidates.
The deadline is 1 December, 2017, and up to five international Fellowships for a Master’s degree or First professional degree will be awarded to successful candidates. The benefits of the Fellowship include $18,000 for a Master’s degree or first professional degree, $20,000 for a doctorate and $30,000 for postdoctoral studies. The international Fellowship covers the costs of education, living and child care.
Availability wise, the programme is closed to previous recipients of any AAUW national fellowships or grants. Unsuccessful candidates may reapply. To qualify, applicants must have citizenship in a country other than the United States. Women with dual citizenship are not eligible.
In addition, entrants are expected to have a degree earned in a country that is different than the United States and that the degree is equivalent to a US bachelor’s degree completed by 30 September 2017. The applicants are also expected to return to their respective countries and pursue a professional career.
