The GSNPCoP Convention Scholarship awards graduate student and new professional ACPA members with financial assistance to attend the Annual ACPA Convention each year. The Community of Practice understands that it may be difficult for some graduate students and new professionals to get to the annual convention, a professional development opportunity that can be vital to your growth as a Student Affairs professional. The scholarship aims to increase the voices of graduate students and new professionals at convention, something from which ACPA and its members all benefit. Interested individuals must fill out an application and submit two references to be considered for the application. The number of scholarships and amounts being awarded vary each year. For more information on the current scholarship, quantities, and amounts, please contact [email protected].
