SEASIDE — The Seaside chapter of American Association of University Women (AAUW) has selected two local women as recipients of their local scholarship for women returning to school after an absence of five years or more. 

Victoria Clark of Seaside was awarded $1,000 to continue her education at Clatsop Community College, where she hopes to obtain an associate’s degree by 2015. She ultimately would like to be a children's author.  

Julie Stough of Warrenton will also receive $1,000 toward completing her associate’s degree in 2014. She has already attained a certificate as a medical assistant and hopes to be employed in the medical community. 

These scholarships will be for the next academic year at CCC.
