The Coastal-Georgetown Branch of the American Association of University Women is offering three $2,000 academic scholarships to graduating young women from Sussex County High Schools.

Students from Cape Henlopen, Indian River, Milford, Sussex Academy, Sussex Central and Sussex Tech High Schools graduating in 2018 are encouraged to apply. Students interested in applying may contact their local school guidance counselor for the online application — available at — and information. The deadline to submit the completed application to the High School Counselor is March 26.

The winners of the scholarships will be notified in May and will be presented their scholarships during the high school’s academic awards ceremonies at the end of the school year. Additionally, the recipients and a parent will be invited to the June AAUW luncheon.

AAUW empowers women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research.
