"Give a little" and Impact a Life...impact stories from NACADA Graduate Scholarship recipients and active members...

  • "As a graduate student, I could not have afforded to attend my first NACADA Annual Conference in 2014 without the support of a NACADA Graduate Student Scholarship…I truly believe that without it, my trajectory within the profession and...association would be different.  This kind of support is what makes NACADA a uniquely inclusive and welcoming professional home for me.  CJ Venable, M.A., Academic Advisor II, Kent State University   Read more 

  • "As a graduate student, becoming a member of NACADA was one of the best decisions I could have made…While my mentors pushed me to reach my fullest potential, NACADA supported me…I am forever thankful for the opportunities NACADA has provided me and appreciate the ones who believed in me to receive the gift of a Graduate Student Regional Conference Scholarship.”   Madeline Anderson, M.Ed., Academic Advisor, University of Tennessee, Knoxville    Read more 

  • "My first NACADA experience opened up many doors for me, and I have now presented at three Regional Conferences, two Annual Conferences, and a webinar. I have also been involved with the NACADA Region 1 Conference Committee. This whole journey began with a scholarship from NACADA, and I could not be any more thankful!”  Jessie Karner, Assistant Director, Worcester Polytechnic Institute   Read more
