New England Association for College Admission Counseling Scholarship Program

Each year, the Annual Meeting & Conference Committee is allocated funds to help provide a number of scholarships for current members who would like to attend the conference but require financial assistance. This scholarship is open to all membership categories to apply for (secondary school counselors, CBO counselors, admissions professionals, etc). Those interested in consideration for this scholarship need to complete the scholarship form by Friday, April 14th. The committee will then review these applications and contact selected recipients by May 1st. If you have any questions, contact Diane Soboski, Conference Chair.

Margaret Addis Memorial Scholar Program

The Margaret Addis Memorial Scholar Program fund enables secondary school counselors from underrepresented areas to attend our Annual Meeting & Conference. "Underrepresented Areas" are defined as rural or urban secondary schools, EOP/TRIO programs and agencies and community/technical colleges in New England. To qualify, candidates should work in settings adversely impacted by budget cuts or limitations, and as such, cannot afford the cost of NEACAC membership or attendance to the Annual Meeting & Conference. It is a primary goal of NEACAC and the IDEA Committee to find ways of providing access to professional development opportunities and the Margaret Addis Memorial Scholarship assists in this effort. *The nomination period for this scholarship ended January 22, 2017. Recipients will be contacted shortly. If you have any questions, please contact Shamika Cameron, IDEA Committee.
