AAUW Mboro logo webThe Murfreesboro chapter of the American Association for University Women is offering the Ruth Houston Memorial Undergraduate Scholarship and the new Butler-Fouts Memorial Graduate Scholarship for the fall 2017 and spring 2018 semesters.

Eligible applicants for the Houston scholarship are nontraditional female undergraduate students age 24 and older who demonstrate academic promise and financial need and who have completed their freshman year at MTSU successfully.

The Butler-Fouts scholarship is available to female graduate students from underrepresented ethnic or racial groups who demonstrate academic promise and financial needs.

Applicants must currently be enrolled in or accepted into an MTSU graduate program. Preference will be given to applicants who show that they are close to completing their degrees.

The scholarship is renewable, which could mean a total of $2,000 for an academic year for eligible students.
