2021 NEW Leadership® Texas Summer Institute
NEW Leadership®, a non-partisan five-day program, gives undergraduate students the tools to become effective leaders in the political arena regardless of their academic interests or career path. During the summer institute, students will meet women leaders from across the country, learn about women’s participation in American politics, and develop and practice leadership skills through panel discussions, workshops, and projects. After the summer institute, participants become part of NEWL’s national network of distinguished alumnae.
Week One of the NEWL Summer Institute will be June 9th and 10th, 2021 and Week Two will be June 14th, 15th, and 16th, 2021. Participants should prepare to be available from 12 pm – 6 pm EST on those days for a variety of programming sessions. Breaks will be scheduled throughout the course of each day.
Students will attend panels, classes, and interactive workshops; some having a national focus including participation with students from our 15 of our partner programs and some with a Texas focus designed exclusively for our NEW Leadership® Texas students. Although, we will miss having the NEW Leadership® experience on campus, we see this as an opportunity for you to meet, connect with, and learn from women leaders and fellow participants from across the country while still joining our distinguished network of NEW Leadership® Texas alums.
Students from colleges and universities across Texas and Texas residents attending out-of-state schools are eligible to apply.
Online applications are now open and the application deadline is April 18, 2021. Each student will need to submit two letters of recommendation to accompany their application.
Letter of Recommendation Form attached to this email.
Thank you, and please let me know if you have any questions.
