National Conference for College Women Student Leaders

The National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL) was held again at the University of Maryland, College Park from May 30 to June 2, 2018. This annual leadership conference has a rich 30-year history, this year attracting more than 700 women from around the world.

The UMBrella Group gave scholarships to two students to attend the conference, where they could attend workshops, meet trailblazing women from around the world, and network with other young university women.
