Poway-Penasquitos – AAUW, chartered in 197, supports women and girls in the local community through a Scholarship Fund and the Tech Trek program. The scholarship fund is aimed at supporting local women who are returning to college. Tech Trek, sponsored by AAUW/CA, sends local eighth grade girls to a science camp located on UCSD campus. An annual literary event, Cover to Cover, is held each spring to raise funds for our local scholarships.
Poway Penasquitos – AAUW encourages personal and professional growth through general meetings held each month, special events such as our Fall Fund Raisers for AAUW Funds and our Spring Fund Raiser, Cover to Cover for Scholarships and Tech Trek. We also have many interest groups such as Happy Hikers, book groups and a Traveler’s Lunch group. Members are also invited to attend the annual AAUW California Spring Convention held in April featuring well known speakers and workshop sessions.
The Poway Penasquitos Branch of AAUW has 135 members from Poway, Rancho Bernardo, Rancho Penasquitos, Scripps, Ramona, 4S Ranch, Carmel Valley and Escondido. Having at least a two year degree is the requirement for membership.
