Authentic Leadership in Action (ALIA) Summer Institute discount and scholarships available

The Authentic Leadership in Action (ALIA) Institute is offering a Summer Institute in Columbus June 24-July 1, 2011. ALIA describes it this way: "The Summer Institute offers strategies and practices that lead to meaningful, systemic change and is a compelling destination for thought leaders and change-makers. This is not your usual conference and not your usual leadership training. The Summer Institute is designed to engage you on every level, so that you can more fully align how you think and see, the tools you apply, and how you engage others to achieve your goals." You can find out more about ALIA here: http://www.aliainstitute.org/ and more about the summer institute here: http://www.aliainstitute.org/summer-institute-2011/.

The Women's Place has helped send a few women to the institute each year for the last several years, but this is the first time the conference will be held in Columbus (always in Halifax before) so this is an opportunity for us to have many more people (male and female) attend without travel expenses, hotels, or a week away from home. In addition we've negotiated a special rate of $1500 (more than a 25% discount) for OSU people for the week if we register at least 20 OSU attendees. If you'd like to attend the ALIA-in-a-day, The Women's Place has negotiated a $50 discount so that the price for the one-day conference would be $300.

To receive the discounted rate:

  • Register online and in the section on dietary and other notes, write in that you are with the "HazelM-J team from OSU"
  • When paying, choose pay by check, then wait for a new invoice. The web registration form will not show the discount but the new invoice will.

Scholarship funds are available through the Critical Difference for Women (CDW). CDW professional development grants apply to conference fees. You can find information about these grants on the CDW website. The deadline is April 14, 2011.

Some scholarship funds are also available through the Women's Place to both men and women who are PPLI, Staff Leadership Series, and Women's Leadership group alums and other women faculty and staff at OSU. There is a small amount of money for students as well. The deadline for sending us a letter of application is March 18, 2011, but we will start considering requests as soon as they come in. Please let us know as soon as possible if you are planning to submit a request even if you don't have everything together yet.

To apply for The Women's Place scholarships include the following in your letter of application:

  • Your name, position, and unit
  • The additional matching funds you have obtained or are trying to obtain
  • Why you want to attend ALIA's summer institute; and
  • How OSU will benefit from your participation in it.
