The AAUW-TC Minnie Votruba Moore Scholarship Endowment is established as a permanent Community Foundation scholarship endowment. The establishing donor is the American Association of University Women Traverse City Area.
The AAUW-TC Minnie Votruba Moore Scholarship was established in 1975 with a gift from Minnie Votruba Moore. The purpose of this scholarship is to recognize and assist area women who are seeking to enrich their educational credentials and enhance their personal and/or career opportunities. In 2016, the AAUW-TC Board decided to endow this scholarship with a gift to the Community Foundation, establishing the AAUW-TC Minnie Votruba Moore Scholarship Endowment, creating a lasting legacy for the AAUW-TC’s commitment to supporting educational and career goals of young women.
