The free statewide program brings in nearly 50 Iowa speakers, including elected officials and nonprofit executives. The institute will be held May 23-27. Women enrolled in any post-secondary academic institution in Iowa, female Iowa residents attending college outside the state and female graduate students should apply by Feb. 16. Nominations from college professors are recommended but not required and are due Jan. 29. For more information, visit the Iowa N.E.W. website.
