AAUW Leadership Program deadlines coming up
Deadlines for AAUW Leadership Programs are approaching! Share these opportunities with other members of your branch, college students, and administrators and with the staff of women’s and career centers at colleges and universities in your community. AAUW College/University partner members receive preference for all of these programs!
Elect Her—Campus Women Win
Elect Her—Campus Women Win, a collaboration between AAUW and Running Start, encourages and trains young women to run for student government on their campuses. Urge local schools to apply to be one of our new campuses to host a session in spring 2012. Applications are available now and must be submitted by September 30, 2011. Selections will be announced October 7, 2011. (AAUW College/University partner members receive preference.)
National Student Advisory Council (SAC)
Each year, AAUW selects 10 outstanding college student leaders from around the nation to be AAUW campus ambassadors and to advise AAUW on student issues. SAC members participate in monthly conference call discussions on leadership and campus issues, contribute to the AAUW blog, promote AAUW programs, and build ties to their local AAUW branch. SAC members visit AAUW in Washington, D.C., in the fall for a two-day retreat and orientation, and they fulfill leadership roles at the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders. Applications to serve on the SAC are available now and must be submitted by September 30, 2011. The new SAC will be announced October 7, 2011. (Students of AAUW College/University partner members receive preference.)
Campus Action Projects (CAP)
This year’s CAP grant program focuses on the issues raised by AAUW’s upcoming November 2011 research report, Crossing the Line: Sexual Harassment in Schools. The report includes nationally representative data about the sexual harassment that occurs in grades 7-12. To put our research into practice, teams of student leaders and campus faculty nationwide may apply for up to $5,000 in CAP grants to design and implement programs using recommendations from the report, found in the Request for Proposals. Proposal goals may include raising awareness about sexual harassment and/or improving schools’ prevention methods and responsiveness to sexual harassment. Applications are available now and must be submitted by October 21, 2011. Applicants will be contacted by December 2, 2011. (AAUW College/University partner members receive preference.)
