Our primary sources of funding are from donations. From the inception of the program through June, 2017 the Rancho Bernardo Branch has awarded 137 scholarships, approximately $104,250.
CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY SAN MARCOS
Our branch offers scholarships of $1,500 or more. Many of our recipients are re-entry students, striving to provide a better life for themselves and their families through education. These women are focused and determined to succeed. We encourage you to apply.

AAUW-RB OSHER SCHOLARSHIP
