If you know a female MTSU college student who exhibits leadership potential, you can nominate her for the experience of a lifetime at an upcoming conference.

The American Association of University Women is accepting nominees now to attend the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders, slated for May 30 to June 2, 2018, at the University of Maryland, College Park.

AAUW’s Murfreesboro chapter will select one nominee for the Tennessee AAUW scholarship, which will pay the cost of registration to the conference.
