Century College AAUW St. Croix Valley (MN) Branch Scholarship

Our branch is contributing $1000 each year for 3 years to  AAUW St. Croix Valley (MN) Branch Scholarship with the Century College Foundation for the 2019-2020 academic years. The recipient will be a student (preferably female) transferring to a four-year college/university.  We will also fund their membership to AAUW, while they are a student.

Sara Jorgensen has been named the 2019 scholarship winner by the St. Croix Valley
chapter of the American Association of University Women.
A graduate of Stillwater Area High School and Century College, she will continue her
studies this fall at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. She is planning to major in
marketing communications.
Scholarship committee member Pat Anderson said, “We had a pool of 21 candidates
and Sara was selected for her excellent grade point average, and her personal letter
of career goals and financial needs impressed all of us on the committee. Each
committee member looked at each of the candidate’s information, and Sara was
selected by each one of us as the top choice. “
Sara is very grateful for the scholarship. She said, “This scholarship is going to help
me focus more on working towards my degree and less on working to pay my bills,
which takes some weight off my shoulders since the scholarship will reduce debt after
graduation. Every little bit helps, and I greatly appreciate AAUW for providing this
scholarship for transfer students.”
Congratulations Sara!
