Empire Fundraising for NCCWSL Scholarships

Are you familiar with NCCWSL, fondly known as Nic-Whistle?  NCCWSL is the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders. Well, Empire is raising funds to send college students to the NCCWSL conference next spring. We’ve had two major gifts of $500 each already. Thank you, Dr. Rani and Empire president Maria Ellis.

The Empire State Virtual Branch will donate two $500 awards to two college students to attend the AAUW NCCWSL at the University of Maryland, College Park from May 30, 2013 to June 1st,  2013.

Who will get the scholarships?

The two students who write the best 500 word essays stating why “Leadership for Today and Tomorrow is important” will win the $500 award each.

We will start the contest in February 15, 2013 and end of March 30, 2013.  The awards will be given at the NYS AAUW-NYS Convention in High Peaks Resort, Lake Placid on April 26-28, 2013.
