Research and Projects Fund-AAUW
Kenneth McGraws family and friends established the fund as a lasting memorial to recognize his life-long commitment to education. He had a zest and desire for learning, both for himself and for others. His memorial fund gives career development grants to women who are advancing their current careers or re-entering the workforce. Grants may also be awarded to AAUW branches, state organizations, and local non-profit organizations for innovative community programs or non-degree research projects that promote equity for women and girls.
Ken was a public school teacher and administrator. He was also a colonel in the Army Reserve and taught command and general staff classes during weekends and summers. He had a love of travel and was interested in learning about life in other countries.
Believing in the twin goals of education and equity for all, Kenneth joined AAUW as soon as the organization opened its membership to men. This fund is a loving testament to a man who actively supported causes in which he believed.
