Women Leading Education

Applying for a scholarship?

Scholarships are available for supporting the travel of delegates to the conference. Scholarships are intended to support those who would not be able to attend without the financial support. A limited amount of funding has been made available through the American Association of School Administrators (AASA), the University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA), Virginia Commonwealth University, University of Waikato, current members of WLE and other sources to provide these scholarships for successful applicants to attend this Women Leading Education Across Continents (WLE) global conference.

Am I eligible?

To be eligible to apply for a scholarship you must be in need of financial assistance to attend, be in a position to clearly benefit from going to the conference, with a solid potential to take home new knowledge, skills, and contacts that will benefit your local work and advance the work of WLE, and are able to cover round trip travel and associated costs eg: travel insurance) to the conference. Applicants for the scholarships must submit an abstract with their application and intend to present at the WLENZ conference.
