Congratulations! You have been nominated by a College of Alameda faculty or staff member who is familiar with your work in leadership and believes you will both benefit from and contribute to the AAUW National Conference of College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL) to be held at the University of Maryland, College Park , MD from May 27-30. 2020.
These two $1,200 AAUW Alameda Branch scholarships will cover the residential fees of three nights: Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in campus residence halls, including meals. An additional night (Saturday) is also covered by this grant to ensure students some time to visit Washington DC and travel home on Sunday evening. Transportation to Maryland and ground transportation will also be covered by the grant and arranged by the AAUWAlameda Program Director.
The application process involves completing this application, giving authorization for the release of your transcript by COA and one letter of recommendation from a person familiar with your volunteer or service activities and a 500 word essay describing what leadership contributions you have made to school, college or local community. In this essay, you should also reflect on what you are learning about yourself and what social changes and developing women’s roles you are interested in exploring at NCCWSL.
For finalists there will be in person interviews on campus the week of March 16-20. Winners will be announced the week of March 23. Students will then be officially registered for the NCCWSL conference by the program director after submission of additional registration information.
For those who are not awarded a full scholarship, partial scholarships may still be available from AAUW through www.nccwsl.org.
Students should plan to bring $100 to cover out of pocket expenses.
