About TILLAMOOK branch
The Tillamook branch of AAUW works together to promote the welfare, education, and rights of all women and girls.
With these goals in mind, the branch works on fundraising projects and other programs that promote math, science, and technology (STEM) education for girls by honoring nine high school women each year for their excellence in these fields and by providing thousands of dollars worth of scholarships for local women attending 2-and 4-year higher educational institutions.
Our community education projects include co-sponsorship of county spelling bees and the hosting of political forums so that citizens can meet the candidates and hear their views.
AAUW also promotes fellowship and fun for its members offering book clubs, lunch groups and other interest groups. An associate degree or higher is required for membership and we warmly welcome new members.
