AAUW of Minnesota and AAUW Minnesota branches offer NCCWSL scholarships!

AAUW of Minnesota is offering ten $1,000.00 scholarships! One scholarship per branch that sends a college woman to the National Conference of College Women Student Leaders, aka NCCWSL, pronounced ‘nick-whistle.’


AAUW of Minnesota received thank you notes from 2019 NCCWSL attendees:

“ …the conference was absolutely amazing and made me feel like I can conquer whatever the world throws at me…I attended five workshops that helped strengthen my skills, knowledge, and abilities. 1. Rock Your Profile 2. Navigating Difficult Conversations 3. Building Authentic and Powerful Relationships in a Diverse Society 4. Campaigns and Election Trails 5. Public Speaking for Women by a Woman Who Speaks… ~Sara Minder

“ …Thank you so very much for the scholarship to attend NCCWSL…the speech by Dr. Tererai Trent (Oprah’s “All-Time Favorite Guest”) inspired me…I was so happy to meet so many different people and I will certainly bring my memories back to Smith… ~Claudia Schmugge

I hope your branch will consider giving this opportunity to a deserving young college woman in your community by applying for a $1,000.00 grant, which covers the cost of NCCWSL registration, room and board and airfare. AAUW of Minnesota Board has voted to approve awarding $1,000.00 to ten Minnesota branches, one grant per branch, that send a student to the 2020 National Conference for College Women Student Leaders aka NCCWSL.

The deadline to submit a chosen applicant, along with proof of registration, to AAUW of Minnesota is February 1, 2020. Checks will be awarded to each branch in February 2020.

As America’s premier conference for college women, NCCWSL provides a transformative experience for 800+ attendees and prepares them to be the next generation of leaders.
