Deadline to apply - June 2019
Presented to selected new advising professionals with at least one (1) year of experience (12 months calendar year), but for less than three (3) in a position(s) where advising comprises at least 50% of their job duties. This scholarship provides those selected with an opportunity to experience the Annual Conference in order to enhance their future leadership potential in NACADA. The scholarship waives the early bird member registration fee only and travel/hotel expenses are the responsibility of the scholarship recipient. The provision of this type of support upholds one of the primary goals of the Association, which is to offer comprehensive professional development opportunities.
These scholarships are made possible due to the success of the NACADA Silent Auction held during the Annual Conference and your donations.
