The Resiliency Project: 

This project celebrates the resiliency of the human spirit!  A UA scholarship will be awarded every year to a woman who is near graduation and has triumphed over sexual assault during her academic career.  This annual luncheon will be a fundraiser to continue the scholarship.

The date has been set for the Resiliency Lunch, for Friday, September 15, 11:30am – 1:00pm.

Location is at the YWCA, 525 N Bonita Ave, Tucson, AZ 85745

This is a fundraising lunch for our branch to award one scholarship each year to one woman at the UA who is near graduation.

We will have a nationally respected speaker from the UA, and a video message from Laura Dunn, this year’s AAUW Eleanor Roosevelt Award recipient.
