Applicantions for the 2021 conference are being reviewed and applicants will be notified by April 15th .
The mission of the Women’s Leadership Conference (WLC) of Southern Oregon is to foster leadership in business, government and nonprofit organizations that more fully reflects our community.
Thanks to the generosity of WLC’s sponsors, we are able to provide partial need-based scholarships for 10% of available conference seats each year as well as a reduced registration fee for students. Each year the scholarship amount may vary depending on the number of applicants and the available budget.
Your scholarship application will be reviewed by a committee of the Women’s Leadership Conference board of directors and will be based on a scoring system. The scoring system is based on reducing financial and other barriers to participation and prioritizes individuals who bring greater attendance diversity. This might include individuals who are underrepresented in the conference, including but not limited to ability, age, class, ethnicity, gender, language, nation of origin, race, religion, sexual orientation and other identities. Priority will also be given to rural residents, first time attendees, professionals returning to work after a significant absence or seeking work, those who are self-employed or entrepreneurs, and new professionals.
