AAUW offering conference scholarship

The Salisbury Branch of American Association of University Women (AAUW) will again offer scholarships to two female college students from this area to attend the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL).
This annual leadership conference brings together college women to address important and contemporary leadership issues. It provides a transformative experience for attendees. Students return home ready to improve their campuses and their communities.
Conference attendees will have many experiences in addition to networking with other college women student leaders from around the country, such as listening to energizing keynote speakers, meeting Women of Distinction awards recipients, and participating in workshops on a wide range of topics including advocacy, leadership, health and wellness, financial literacy, and life after college.
There will also be pre-conference activities and opportunities to become involved in community service projects and skill-building events.
The conference will take place May 31-June 2 at the University of Maryland in College Park. For more information about the conference visit www.nccwsl.org.
The scholarships provided by the Salisbury AAUW will cover registration, room and board and $100 towards travel expenses.
Applicants must be from Rowan County and enrolled in college as a sophomore or junior with at least a 2.5 grade point average. Awardees may be required to attend a scholarship meeting, presentation and/or an AAUW meeting.
For more information or to obtain a scholarship application, contact Brunetta Franklin, AAUW Branch President, at bafranklin. aauw@gmail.com. The deadline for applications is Feb. 29.
