The Iowa Community Colleges Support The Way Up Scholarship Fund was established in 2016 to provide support for a deserving Iowa community college woman who would not otherwise be able to attend the 2016 annual conference. Iowa community colleges wish to encourage deserving women employed by Iowa community colleges to participate in The Way Up conference to enhance and strengthen their leadership skills. The Scholarship will cover conference registration and one night's stay in the conference hotel. The winner will be announced during the conference.
Women employed by an Iowa Community College seeking professional development for formal and informal leadership and administrative positions in higher education may apply or be nominated for this scholarship award.
Nominations or applications should include the name, address, phone number and email address of the candidate, a one page statement addressing the woman's skills and abilities as a community college leader and what she hopes to gain from participation in this conference. After selection, the scholarship recipients must submit the text of a three minute presentation to be made at the Thursday lunch. The topic of the presentation will be "Inspiring Excellence for Women in Higher Education - A Community College Perspective."
