National Conference Scholarship Essay Deadline Extended

May 15, 2012 | Sarah

At the beginning of the month, NeW announced its National Conference for Thursday, June 28 and Friday, June 29. We also announced our Travel Scholarship for those who are interested in attending the National Conference, but who will not be in DC for the summer.

We are extending the deadline until next Tuesday, March 22. If you are currently a female college student and would like to attend the National Conference this summer, please apply by writing a response to one of the following question:

 What difference has NeW made on your campus? Why is it important to have NeW on your campus? What do you plan to do next semester to further your chapter’s impact?

What is the biggest challenge you face as a NeW woman?

Recently, the media has reported on the “war on women.” Based on your experience, is there a war on women? How does a book or author you read in NeW relate to this phenomenon?

 Winners’ responses will be highlighted on the blog and at the Conference. By submitting an essay, you agree that we can post the essay. Scholarships will be awarded to individuals for travel expenses and may be used towards helping your entire chapter attend.

Please submit answers (no more than 800 words) via email to Sarah Davis by Tuesday, May 22.

Good luck!
