The Way Up XXII Planning Council is asking for nominations for the Eunice A. Dell Memorial Scholarship Program. The Eunice A. Dell Memorial Fund was established in 2008 to provide support for young professional women to participate in The Way Up Conference. Eunice Dell, who served as Assistant Vice President for Administration and Finance and Assistant Vice President/Faculty and Staff Disabilities Coordinator at the University of Northern Iowa, was a key figure in planning many of The Way Up conferences, serving as the Program Chair for the XX and XXI conferences. The Scholarship covers the conference registration and one night's stay in the conference hotel. This years winner will be announced during the conference.
Young professional women (=< age 30) in any higher education institution in Iowa who aspire to moving up in higher education leadership or administration may apply or be nominated for this scholarship.
Nominations or applications should include the name, address, phone number and email address of the candidate, a one page statement addressing the young professionals interest in an administrative or leadership position in higher education and what she hopes to gain from participation in this conference. After selection, the scholarship recipient must submit the text of a three minute presentation to be made at the Thursday evening dinner. The topic of the presentation will be "Women in Higher Education: Redefining Leadership - A Young Professional Women's Perspective."
