The Michigan ACE Women’s Network will offer scholarships to attend an ACE National or Regional Women’s Leadership Forum:
Regional Women’s Leadership Forums: This 3-day leadership program is for mid-level women administrators (typically department chairs, directors, and assistant/associate deans) with high potential for advancement in higher education administration. Regional Forums are held in various parts of the U.S. in the spring and fall of each year, and MI-ACE will support a woman from a member institution to attend.

The application is due six/eight weeks before the Forum so that the selection process can take place and allow the recipient to make travel arrangements.

National Women’s Leadership Forums: This 3-day leadership program is for senior-level women administrators (typically deans and above) seeking a college or university presidency, vice presidency, or major deanship.
