Once again, NCCWSL inspires area scholars

Our 2016 NCCWSL attendees.

Our 2016 NCCWSL attendees.

Since 2006 our branch has sponsored college women from our partner schools (Eastern Michigan University, University of Michigan, and Washtenaw Community College) to attend the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL) — the premiere leadership training conference for college women offered by AAUW.  We pay round-trip bus fares for our applicants who win registration scholarships from AAUW and sometimes pay other costs when funds are available. 
       This year we were able to send 7 women representing all three schools to the three-day conference, which was held on the University of Maryland campus in College Park, near Washington DC, on June 1-3.  All have sent the branch “thank you” letters for an experience they found amazing, transforming, inspiring, life-changing, and confidence building.  Read just two of these reports, from Antoinette Debose and Destinee Leaphart, to see what a great impact this experience can have on the participants, then go to the NCCWSL page to find out more about our involvement with the conference.

Did You Know …

Since 1888 AAUW’s fellowships and grants have provided more than $100 million to more than 12,000 women and projects from 140 countries!  Read the whole story and meet some current scholars.

Make a Difference! 

Learn New Things! Meet New Friends!  Have Fun!

Just over 110 years ago a small group of women graduates in Ann Arbor gathered together to form the Ann Arbor Branch of the Association of Collegiate Alumni – the forerunner of AAUW.  Today we are a vibrant, active group of some 300 intellectually curious women, devoted to improving the lives of women and girls through education.  Along the way we manage to improve our own lives – and have a lot of fun.  We welcome new members.
