Educational Enrichment

Here are our education initiatives:


Local Scholarships

Three or four scholarships are offered each year for young women who graduated from Half Moon Bay or Pescadero High Schools and are now entering their third or fourth year of college.

Speech Trek

Each February, a topic is presented for debate, chosen by AAUW CA.  Half Moon Bay high school students are eligible to enter.  Our members help with their presentations. A winner is chosen locally who then participates in a statewide competition.


Tech Trek

Five seventh graders from Cunha Intermediate School are chosen for a week-long STEM camp held at Stanford University during the summer. The girls are nominated by their science and math teachers.

STEM Workshop

A four-day STEM program is held at Cunha Intermediate School in the summer for those girls who were nominated for Tech Trek but were not chosen as finalists.
