Brewington and Doar, winners of AAUW scholarships to the Clemson University Summer Scholars program, will discuss their experiences in the program. These scholarships are awarded by the Tryon Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) to encourage interest in the math and science fields. The program is week-long and in addition to challenging courses, provides hands-on learning and early exposure to the college experience.
For more than 20 years, the Tryon area AAUW branch has provided full scholarships to attend the program to deserving young women from both Landrum and Polk County schools. Recipients are selected by their teachers and administration for having demonstrated excellent academic performance, primarily in math and science.
The meeting is open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
