Each year AAUW provides over $4.3M in graduate fellowships and grants. In 2012-13 about 30 recipients are studying in NY State. Empire Branch members, curious about the projects the fellowships are supporting, have asked branch president Maria Ellis to interview a fellow or two at each of our branch meetings.
All members are welcome to attend the teleconference. If you belong to a local branch and want a speaker, one of these fellows may be just perfect. You can read their interview by clicking on their link.
