The University of Northern Iowa Department of Political Science is holding their 10th Annual Women in Politics Bipartisan Scholarship Benefit on Thursday, Oct. 17 at the Hilton Garden Inn Cedar Falls.

The benefit will help celebrate the contributions of Iowa women in public service while raising money for the Women in Politics scholarship fund. Scholarships are awarded to UNI undergraduate students studying political science or public administration with an interest in public service. Last year’s benefit contributed to scholarships for 2019-20 recipients Erin Thomason (political science/spanish, senior) and Emily Loomis (political science, junior).

This year’s featured keynote speaker is Jennifer Jacobs, an award-winning journalist and White House National political reporter for Bloomberg News.

Tickets for the event are $50 per seat, available online at csbs.uni.edu/women-in-politics. RSVP by Oct. 7.
