The Newark Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) invites UD students to apply for its annual sponsorship of a rising senior woman (expected graduation Class of 2016) to attend the National Conference of College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL).

AAUW Newark Branch has sponsored UD women students attending NCCWSL (pronounced "nick-whistle") since 2011. Branch sponsorship of $500 covers fees for residential registration at this national conference. NCCWSL 2015 will be held May 28-30, 2015, at the University of Maryland, College Park.

Jointly organized by AAUW and NASPA-Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, NCCWSL is America's premier conference for college women. NCCWSL provides a transformative experience for attendees and prepares them to be the next generation of leaders. The conference offers more than 50 leadership workshops; a graduate school and career fair; preconference activities in nearby Washington, D.C.; and networking opportunities with lifelong benefits.

The recipient will be recognized at the May 2015 meeting of the Newark Branch of AAUW and will be invited to report on the conference experience at a branch meeting in Fall semester 2015.
