Women's leadership conference scholarships available

RELEASED: Feb. 7, 2011

EAU CLAIRE — University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire students are invited to apply for scholarships to attend the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders in June 2011 at the University of Maryland. Scholarships are sponsored by the AAUW-Eau Claire branch and the application deadline is Feb. 28.

Sophomore Gretchen Bachmeier, of Eau Claire, a management major and women's studies minor, attended last year's conference and said she learned and gained so much more than she had anticipated.

"One of the most rewarding things I got out of this conference was I finally felt I was starting my own journey of activism," Bachmeier said.

According to the NCCWSL website, students selected to attend the conference will have the opportunity to participate in workshops focusing on advocacy, leadership, health and wellness, and real world issues such as financial literacy and life after college.

AAUW is a nationwide network of more than 100,000 members and donors, whose mission is to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research.

The scholarship is open to both women and men from UW-Eau Claire and Chippewa Valley Technical College and applications must be printed and mailed or delivered in person to Beth Kozbial Ernst, UW-Eau Claire department of foreign languages, 105 Garfield Ave., Eau Claire, WI 54702. For additional information, contact Kozbial Ernst at 715-836-4173 or ernstbk@uwec.edu.
