Established in 1881, the American Association of University Women (AAUW) is a leading voice for equity and education for women and girls. AAUW is comprised of two parts: the association, a 501(c)(4) 100,000-member organization with more than 1,300 branches nationwide that lobbies and advocates for education and equality, with a 501(c)(3) Leadership and Training Institute; and the AAUW Educational Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public foundation established in 1958 to provide support and advancement for women in higher education, to conduct research on equity in education for women and girls, and to provide funds and a support system for women seeking judicial redress for gender discrimination in higher education.
Both AAUW entities accept interns, though the specialized departments vastly differ in their internship offerings. All interns assist associate directors on a number of projects. Some past responsibilities have included assisting the membership department, planning AAUW’s international symposium, working on an e-zine for female college students and serving as the legal intern for the advocacy fund.
Open to college juniors and seniors, as well as recent grads and grad students.
