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 65 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.
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, and once again planned for 2018. For more information, follow this link: http://techtrek-nj.aauw.net/
