The ACPA Emerging Scholars Program was implemented by the ACPA Senior Scholars in 1999. The Emerging Scholars Program supports, encourages, and honors early-career individuals who are emerging as contributors to student affairs and higher education scholarship and who are pursuing research initiatives congruent with the mission, interests, and strategic goals of ACPA. 

Emerging Scholar Program candidates must have an earned doctorate and must be or become members of ACPA. 

Recipients of the award are recognized as Emerging Scholar-Designees and serve as two-year term. Emerging Scholar-Designees who have fulfilled their research and scholarly leadership commitments – as specified in their applications – by the end of their two-year term will receive the ACPA Emerging Scholars Award.
