Due to the postponement of the AAUW's National Conference for College Women Student Leaders, KAWSE is not longer able to offer a travel scholarship to attend the conference. Thank you to everyone who expressed interest! We hope you will keep an eye out for other KAWSE opportunities and events to participate in!
