Women and Congress

Seminar Dates | March 13-17, 2017

The Public Leadership Education Network (PLEN) sponsors need-based financial aid for outstanding students interested in attending the PLEN Women and Congress Seminar in March 2017.

PLEN scholarships will assist students in funding a portion and/or all of program and registration fees associated with attending the seminar. Student(s) awarded any level of scholarship will be responsible for funding their own housing, transportation, meals and any remaining dues for program and registration fees not covered by the scholarship award.  Find out more about seminar fees.

Preference will be given to currently enrolled undergraduate women, but other current students are eligible to apply.
