Since 1936, the AAUW-Appleton Branch has been sponsoring a used book sale to raise money for scholarships for women. Half of the money each year goes to our AAUW-Appleton Centennial Research & Project Grant Fund. Once that fund becomes income-producing, women from across the US will be able to apply for grants to continue their academic research projects. The other half of the money is given as scholarships to local women finishing their baccalaureate degrees or pursuing graduate degree programs. We also give two scholarships to women finishing their Associates degrees at Fox Valley Technical College.
Besides raising scholarship money, our book sale promotes life-long learning & literacy and recycling books and other materials.
