Scholarship winner Isabella Torres Contreras from Lodi High and her mother
We award four $1,000 scholarships, to high school students in Lodi Unified. Extra weight will be given to an AVID student, to a student interested in studying in a math or science-related area, and to a girl, preferably. A committee reads through all of the applications and scholarships are awarded at the schools' Awards Night.

TECH TREK SUPPORT
AAUW Lodi has financially supported sending middle school-aged girls to Tech Trek, a special science and math camp, for many years. We send at least 4 girls. The camp is a week-long experience for girls interested in math and science. To this end, it is our branch’s involvement in the National Girls Collaborative movement, which seeks to promote the participation of girls in educational areas traditionally seen as male-dominated areas. Following their experience at camp, the girls return for our kick-off luncheon in August to share their stories. Our branch provides mentors for each girl and will keep track for 5 years. As mentors, we create activities we can enjoy with our mentees.
