WHO: All student members (post-graduate, graduate, or undergraduate) who have not previously received this scholarship are eligible to apply for the 2019 WIL Edith Kaplan Scholarship. Applications from both women and men are welcomed and encouraged. Recipients are expected to assist with the registration desk at the WIL Networking Event at the annual conference in San Diego.

2. $450 to defray travel expenses. 

WHAT: In order to apply, please submit a 500 word (min) to 1000 word (max) essay on the following topic:
Despite academic success, promotions, and outstanding accomplishments, high achieving people often find themselves struggling with a nagging feeling that they will be ‘found out’ or unmasked as a fraud. Imposter syndrome is the internal suspicion that one’s success is a matter of luck, timing, charm, or accident. Those that suffer from this nagging voice often feel as though they have somehow managed to slip through the cracks undetected and that it is just a matter of time before other people discover they don’t belong. Imposter syndrome affects us all at one point or another, and has historically held women back from growth in the work place. How has this affected you and what have you done to work through this experience?

WHEN
: Please send your essay to NANWIL@nanonline.org no later than 5:00 p.m. EST on July 31, 2019.
