About the Organization

AWIU supports and advocates for the work that women leaders and female-oriented non-profit organizations are doing around the world to build a more just, economically-sound and humane society.

About the Grant

Central to AWIU’s mission is its commitment to strengthening the work of women across the world through grants. At its inception in 1968, AWIU issued grants for individual women, which enabled them to travel to the United States for study. In recent years, with such great changes in travel and communications, AWIU’s grant program now focuses upon issuing micro-grants to women’s groups, or groups which enhance the wellbeing of women within a developing country. For example, in 2019 AWIU’s grant program supported sixteen small NGOs, centering on Africa, South Asia, and Central America. Projects include supporting elementary education for girls in India, to sustainable cassava cultivation in Malawi, to seeding a thread bank and vocational training for an indigenous women’s cooperative in Guatemala.


Preference is given to projects that:

  • Are women-led
  • Are concrete in nature
  • Are time-limited
  • Are focused on education, health or entrepreneurial development
  • Have a quantifiable outcome
  • Have a potential multiplier effect
  • Are not more than USD 5,000
  • Have two verifiable references
  • Are recommended by International Women of Courage, personnel of the U.S. government or other individuals or entities favorably known to AWIU
