USC Students Invited to Apply for Scholarships to Attend Conference

September 10, 2019

Undergraduate and graduate students are invited to apply for scholarships to attend the 6th Annual Women’s Leadership Counts Conference that will be held November 7, 2019, in Beverly Hills. Presented by the Japan America Society of Southern California, the theme of this year’s conference is: “From Locker Room to C-Suite,” examining how playing sports can foster the skills necessary for individuals to become influential leaders in their professional careers.

Scholarship applications are now being accepted and are due Friday, October 4, 2019, at 5:00 p.m. Scholarship recipients will be notified in late October via email. If selected, students will receive a full waiver of the registration fee (transportation and/or parking are not covered). Recipients will be expected to actively participate in the roundtable discussion and take notes; complete a participant survey after the conference; and write a brief report about their conference experiences, sharing what was learned.
