AAUW San Juan is a branch of AAUW (American Association of University Women) active in San Juan, Puerto Rico.  We currently number about 70 members and more than 130 friends.  We actively raise money for the San Juan Research and Projects grant, part of the more than $6 million dollars AAUW gives to women scholars annually to help them finance their education. We support national initiatives like Work Smart, and sponsor women to the National Conference of Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL), as well as raise money for local community projects.

We also have a lot of fun – with numerous parties and social events for members and their friends and families.  Monthly from September to May we host a program with speakers on topics of interest to our members and the public.

We believe in equity for women – in all spheres of life – and we work toward achieving that through research, education, advocacy and philanthropy.  Join us!
