AAUW is an organization motivated to empower women since 1881, one of its many actions it’s to offer international scholarships for degrees or researches programs at the US to women who aren’t citizens. Applicants must have a bachelor degree, (it won’t matter if it is from an online college) before October and must had applied to one of the available higher education institutions. Candidates are selected according to their academic record and their passion by working with women and girls; they would also have to return to their home country to become business, government, activism, arts and science leaders.
