Discovering NGLA Scholarship

If your delegation is coming to NGLA after not having attending the NGLA Annual Conference for the last three years or perhaps coming to NGLA for the first time, NGLA wants to acknowledge and celebrate your return. We are offering a scholarship that will cover the registration cost for 4 individuals and the campus professional. If you have already registered, we would refund your registration cost if your campus is selected. If you are interested in applying, please submit a letter on University letterhead that details the following:

  • What made you decide to come to the NGLA annual conference?
  • What are the learning goals for your delegation?
  • How will receiving the scholarship help you achieve those goals?
  • How will students implement what they learn at the conference?
  • What are your plans to work toward ensuring funding for future attendance at the conference?

As a condition of the scholarship, you would commit to writing a blog post that would be included on the NGLA blog and highlighted in the newsletter. Please submit the letter of interest by January 17, 2019 @ 11:59pm EST to [email protected].

Applicants will be notified via email on February 1, 2019.

“Speakers at NGLA were not afraid to address sensitive and controversial topics that are applicable to the Greek experience. I will definitely be looking into bringing these speakers to my own campus so that more of my peers can hear their messages as well.”

- Jessica Jue, Carnegie Mellon University, alpha Kappa Delta Phi (aKDPhi). Scholarship sponsored by Rho Lambda.

“Getting a scholarship to attend NGLA, gave me the opportunity to network, learn and teach many other student leaders. I also learned how to be a better and stronger leader to be able to lead my council to greater success. I created many bonds with new people and learned a little bit about myself. In the future I wish to be a speaker at NGLA to be able to inspire other student leaders, how I was inspired this very weekend!”

- Brittany Carson, Widener University, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated
