WELCOME TO Women In Government Service (WINGS)
WINGS OFFERS TWO SCHOLARSHIPS ANNUALLY TO MUNICIPAL ELECTED WOMEN TO ATTEND MML'S SUMMER CONFERENCE!
Are you an elected municipal woman in one of Maryland's 157 municipalities? Never attended an MML Summer Convention? Are you newly elected and wanted to learn more about your role, duties, and functions?
Then you need to become a member of WINGS. WINGS is an organization of municipal elected women working together to mentor and help other municipal elected women. One way we do this is to offer annually, at least, two scholarships to the MML Summer Convention.
How do you get to be considered for these scholarships? I thought you would never ask. Here are the criteria and the directions for applying.
Eligibility Criteria for Scholarship to MML Convention or Conference
GUIDELINES FOR SCHOLARSHIPS
Introduction: WINGS seeks to promote and educate women in municipal government. WINGS believes that the more women know about how government works and possess the tools necessary to function fully in government, the more involved women will become.
Purpose: To assist women, WINGS provides scholarship opportunities annually for up to four women each year to attend the MML Summer Convention or MML Fall Conference.
For more information on WINGS Scholarships, please go to our Services and Program Page.
