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.
