Thank you to the John Joseph Zitnay and Theresa Zitnay Trust
Terry Zitnay was a long-time member of the Flagler Branch and we recently received news of this unexpected and most generous bequest to the AAUW Flagler Local Scholarship Fund (501c3).

STEM CAMPS FOR YOUNG GIRLS
We send rising eighth grade girls to the AAUW FL Tech Trek camp each summer. Girls live on campus in residence halls, attend core classes, hands on workshops, field trips and a Professional Women’s Night. Potential campers must be in the seventh grade, nominated by their teacher, complete the application process and interview before selection is made by an AAUW state committee.

We offer scholarships to qualified graduating high school seniors, continuing education students and middle and high school girls in grades 6 – 11 pursuing the study of the creative arts. Our branch also donates to the Take Stock in Children program administered locally by the Flagler County Education Foundation.
