Margaret Addis Memorial Scholar Program

The Margaret Addis Memorial Scholar Program fund enables secondary school counselors from underrepresented areas to attend our Annual Meeting and Conference. "Underrepresented Areas" are defined as rural or urban secondary schools, EOP/TRIO programs, 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 and 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. 

This year’s Annual Meeting and Conference is June 6-8, 2018 at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY.

The application for the Margaret Addis Scholarship is due by February 9, 2018. Decisions will be released  in late-February 2018.
