NCCWSL scholarship nominations now open

AAUW’s own National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (aka NCCWSL, pronounced “nick whistle”) is a two-and-a-half-day conference designed to enhance the leadership skills of college women and to promote effectiveness in their work on campus and in their community. NCCWSL will be held May 29-June 1, 2019, at the University of Maryland, College Park.

AAUW Murfreesboro is currently accepting nominations for the AAUW-TN annual NCCWSL scholarship award. The individual elected by the Murfreesboro branch is submitted as our nominee for the Tennessee state scholarship. If AAUW Murfreesboro’s nominee is awarded the AAUW-TN scholarship, AAUW Murfreesboro will contribute an additional $200 in travel funds on top of the cost of registration paid for by the state.
