Call for Nominations

2019 Marion Flagg Scholarships 

 

What better time than during the holiday season to consider how you can help others in 2019! The Marion Flagg Scholarship Program gives you the perfect opportunity to provide support to colleagues and friends in the field of college counseling and admissions. 

Named for one of PCACAC's most outstanding members, the Marion Flagg Scholarship is awarded annually to a group of exceptional educational professionals who are not currently members of PCACAC and who have not previously attended a PCACAC conference. PCACAC and its sponsors provide up to TEN scholarships for counselors to attend the 54th Annual ConferenceSelf nominations are welcome. 

This scholarship specifically targets counselors who work with historically underserved students, minority students or students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Each scholarship includes one year of free membership in PCACAC, one conference registration, hotel lodging (two nights, in room shared with another scholarship winner of the same gender or 50% of the cost of housing  for a single room), and transportation. 

SUBMIT YOUR NOMINATION by February 15, 2019.

The Inclusion, Access and Success Committee oversees the selection of scholarship recipients. Most of these colleagues work with minority populations or students from disadvantaged backgrounds. They may be high school counselors, two- or four-year college admission professionals, independent counselors or individuals working in such programs as KIPP, Upward Bound, the College Success Foundation, AVID, etc.  

Selected recipients and their nominators will be notified by March 8, 2019.  Award certificates will be presented to recipients at the 54th Annual Conference.  Nominee must make every attempt to attend the program if selected.
