AAUW American Fellowships support women scholars who are completing dissertations, planning research leave from accredited institutions, or preparing research for publication. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Candidates are evaluated on the basis of scholarly excellence; quality and originality of project design; and active commitment to helping women and girls through service in their communities, professions, or fields of research.
Applications are open from August 1-November 1. More information about each opportunity (for different career stages) can be found here: https://www.aauw.org/what-we-do/educational-funding-and-awards/american-fellowships/
