We are very excited to announce that WVU AAUW will be sponsoring our first group of WVU students to attend AAUW's National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL) on June 2-4, 2016 at the University of Maryland!
Attached is our application that is due Monday, April 18th. You will also need to have two recommendation letters emailed to us by this date as well. This scholarship comes at almost a $500 value, so be sure to apply! It is open to all WVU students in any major.
If you are selected to receive our scholarship, you must be able to provide your own transportation. Our scholarship covers the registration fee which includes housing, programing (networking sessions, graduate school fair, career fair, workshops, and a night out in Washington DC), five meals throughout the course of the conference, and parking at UMD. Also included in our scholarship is a free membership to WVU AAUW until graduation!

If you have any questions, please email us at email@example.com! I attended this conference in 2014, met NASA astronaut Pam Melroy, Scandal producer Judy Smith, and heard Chelsea Clinton speak among other big names! This conference is the reason that WVU AAUW was founded, so I strongly encourage everyone to apply!
