  • Begin the application process at the HERS website: http://www.hersnet.org/Application.asp
  • Create a new account / password.
  • Identify the HERS institute you would like to attend.
  • Continue through the application process by completing each page and clicking the button at the bottom that says, “Save and Continue to next section”.   
  • Create / save a self-descriptive letter and update your resume / CV. These documents will be uploaded as individual files.
  • At the final page of the application, do not enter any payment information. Instead select "Save and Return to the application home page".
  • Finally, print your application. You may access it anytime by logging in with your account information and choosing "My HERS". (If you are selected as the MSU representative, you will return to finalize the submission.)
  • Submit by email or hard copy: your printed application, self-descriptive letter, resume, and a letter of support from your direct supervisor to cwomen@mnsu.edu or to Jeane McGraw, 325 Wigley Administration Center, by Friday, January 24th, 2014.

The PCSW will review applications and make recommendations. President Davenport will select the HERS representative and applicants will be notified no later than February 24, 2014.

Regardless of the scholarship decision, applicants may identify alternative funding sources, such as professional development funds, to allow participation.
