In 1968, a group of college and university women in the Ocean County area realized that they needed a forum that would meet their needs to gather and form a sisterhood of women with diverse areas of expertise. This would eventually become the Northern Ocean County Branch of the AAUW. Since then, the group has evolved to more than 50 members and has actively supported AAUW initiatives and continues to play an important role in the community. Fundraising to support scholarships, Community Service Projects, informative programming, and a variety of interest groups and social events have become the mainstay of our identity.
Our bi-annual Gift Auction was held on Saturday, March 4, 2017, It was a tremendous success, raising almost $5000 for our scholarship fund (donations still being accepted). Many thanks to all who worked on this event, to our donors and to the wonderful people who shared our enjoyment in the festivities.
The AAUW NOCB awards three $1000 scholarships annually. Please link to our Scholarships page for more information and application forms.
Our branch is thrilled to have participated in the AAUW Tech Trek program held at Stockton University July 16-22, 2017. For more information, follow this link: http://techtrek-nj.aauw.net/
