Scholarship Application for Advising-Related Professional Development

Application Deadline EXTENDED to Wednesday, November 8, 2017

The ACAA is thrilled to launch its professional development scholarship application, sponsored by the Division for Undergraduate Studies. This scholarship program provides financial support to attend advising-related professional development opportunities, upholding a primary goal of the Association—promoting the highest quality of academic advising at University of Oregon.

The scholarship will cover the member registration fees and include a supplemental travel stipend. In order to provide multiple scholarships, full travel and hotel expenses may not be covered by the scholarship.

Scholarship Award Distribution

The committee has allocated $2000 annually to professional development and will be awarding up to $500 per scholarship. Applicants are asked to put together a brief cost estimate, as funding needs vary.
