The mission of the Women’s Leadership Conference (WLC) of Southern Oregon is to foster leadership in business, government, and nonprofit organizations that more fully reflects our community.

Thanks to Dutch Bros Coffee,
our WLC 2023 Scholarship Sponsor

We were able to provide partial need-based scholarships for 10% of available conference seats this year as well as a reduced registration fee for students.

Each year the scholarship amount may vary depending on the number of applicants and the available budget.

Attendee Eligibility

Your scholarship application will be reviewed by a committee of the Women’s Leadership Conference board of directors and will be based on a scoring system. The scoring system is based on reducing financial and other barriers to participation and prioritizes individuals from underrepresented populations. Apply below if you identify as an individual who is:

Underrepresented in your field of work and your community circles:

including but not limited to ability, age, class, ethnicity, gender, language, nation of origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, and other identities.

A rural resident

Someone who’s never attended a professional conference before

A professional returning to work after a significant absence or seeking work

Self-employed or an entrepreneur

A new professional in your industry

Students do not need to apply for scholarships and should simply register for the conference using their student email and click “yes” to student status for the discounted rate.
