Welcome!

The AAUW Carlisle Branch was founded at Dickinson College in 1924. Today the branch focuses on promoting equity for women and girls and on educating the community about women’s concerns through programs, projects, candidates’ nights, and scholarships to Cumberland County women with a financial need. Last year members awarded two $1500 scholarships.
