American Association Of University Women Offers Scholarship Opportunities For Wilmington College Students & Graduates

Below is a press release from the Melrose-Wakefield Area Branch of the American Association of University Women:

MELROSE, MA — The Melrose-Wakefield Area Branch of the American Association of University Women is pleased to offer a scholarship for the 2023-2024 academic year.

A branch scholarship, which is in the amount of $2,000.00, is available as a result of the fundraising activities of the branch and donations received in memory of branch members and their loved ones. This year, the branch scholarship will be given in the memory of Ursula Daley, late of Melrose, who passed away in February 2022. Ursula was a graduate of Cardinal Cushing Girls High School in South Boston, and she received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Boston State Teacher College. Mrs. Daley, as her students fondly knew her, taught math at Melrose High School for 25 years. She was a member of the AAUW for decades and always supported the Scholarship Committee. Ursula was a loving and caring individual, who valued the education of young minds and loved travel and the simple pleasures of life.

The other scholarship, which is in the amount of $750.00, is offered from the Diana L. Goldblith Scholarship Fund, which was established by donations from Mrs. Goldblith’s family and friends following her sudden death in June 1990. Mrs. Goldblith, a longtime Melrose resident, was an active and enthusiastic participant in AAUW’s Literature Group, Great Decisions Group, and Stellar Investment Club.

To be eligible, one must be a resident of Melrose, Wakefield, North Reading, Georgetown, Stoneham, Wilmington, Cambridge, or Georgetown, Maine.  These are all communities from which the branch derives members this year.  In addition, one must attend or be a graduate of a four-year AAUW-accredited college or university and must have completed at least two years of study prior to the fall of 2023.  Special consideration will be given to applicants who have maintained high academic standing and can demonstrate a need for the scholarship for a specific purpose related to educational goals.  All applications will be processed anonymously.
