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 70 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 four scholarships annually. Go to our scholarships page for information and applications.
Our branch is thrilled to have participated in the AAUW Tech Trek program held at Stockton University 2017-20. For more information, follow this link: http://techtrek-nj.aauw.net/. We are hopeful that this program will be able to restart in 2023.
Our branch members and friends grieve the recent passing of our beloved Co-President, Alice Tarlach. She will be in our hearts forever, and her work for AAUW will live on. This year there will be a special scholarship in her memory. Contributions may be sent to our Treasurer: Jan WInckowski, 61 Whitman, Brick, NJ 08724.
