Scholarship Benefit

22nd Annual Scholarship Benefit
Luncheon, Silent Auction, Raffle, & Author’s Presentation 

The AAUW La Mesa-El Cajon Branch raises money, mainly through our annual Scholarship Benefit, to award scholarships to college women & enhance career awareness for girls. In addition to participating in AAUW National’s AAUW Fund program, we award scholarships to women enrolled in local colleges such as Cuyamaca & Grossmont Community Colleges & San Diego State University. Each year, we pay for multiple local 7th-grade girls to attend Tech Trek (science camp) and for aspiring high school students to participate in Speech Trek. Please join us–you need not be a branch member to attend.

When:     Saturday, May 4, 2024, 11 am – 2 pm
Where:   Handlery Hotel, 950 Hotel Circle North, San Diego 92108 (plenty of free parking)
Cost:       $75
Agenda: Luncheon, Silent Auction, Raffle, & Author’s Presentation
