Our University Women’s Foundation (UWF) Annual Meeting and celebration of our scholars was a touching finale to our AAUW-PT year! It was quite special to gather with the scholarship recipients and their families, hear their stories and celebrate together. Our branch is very proud to be assisting such noteworthy scholars in the pursuit of their ambitious educational goals.  Congratulations and best wishes to them all!  For 2016 we granted $49,000 in scholarships to deserving local young women and girls of East Jefferson County. This would not be possible without the support and effort from all of the AAUW-PT members throughout the 2015-2016 year. Every member should applaud each other for the educational impact we make in our community.

AAUW Port Townsend is the largest AAUW branch in the state of Washington.
The branch includes nearly 200 active and involved members living in and around the historic seaport town of Port Townsend, Washington. We have been active advocates for women and education since the branch was founded in 1948.
