NFWL has a long-standing tradition of supporting young women. Over the years, the scholarship has brought together some of the nation’s leading young scholars for a week of mentorship, learning, and growth. Scholarship winners have gone on to attend top universities, found non-profit organizations, and pursue their dream careers. During NFWL’s Annual Conference, winners spend extensive time with an elected woman mentor. These young women learn about a diverse array of policy areas from their mentors, while also learning about what it is like to be an elected woman. Leadership is a pillar of the program and winners engage in various personal and professional development programs to bolster their individual growth.
