Claes Nobel Future Female Leader Scholarship
Fifteen (15) $1,000 awards

The Claes Nobel Future Female Leader award was established to encourage and empower young women to assume future leadership roles in their colleges and universities, their careers, and communities and to become mentors for the young women following in their footsteps. Leadership doesn’t have to mean being the head of a club. Actions, not titles, make leaders.
