Student Support Grant - Accepting Applications!

Category: Awards & Grants

In planning for the new year (Yes, 2019 is almost here!), PCACAC encourages you to give some thought to a student event or project that you’d like to make happen in 2019.  We recognize that members may not always have the financial resources to implement student programming and, since 2013, have provided help through our Student Support Grant (SSG).  If you know a way to help your students in the college process, but don't have the funds to carry it out, or you know of a community program that needs funding to deliver college counseling programming, we may be able to help fund the program you have been dreaming about!

On that note, we are now accepting applications for the Student Support Grant, designed to reimburse counseling professionals in their development and implementation of programs that directly benefit students. 

Who may apply? PCACAC members may apply for a Student Support Grant for their own student program or they may wish to nominate a community member whose volunteer work nurtures college readiness.  For detailed information about the selection criteria and application process, please review the Student Support Grant (SSG) guidelines. One $400 grant will be awarded for 2019. 

The deadline for submitting your application is February 15, 2019. Grant applications will be reviewed by the SSG Program Committee and the selected recipient (and their nominator, if applicable) will be notified by February 26, 2019.  An award certificate will be presented to the recipient at PCACAC’s 54th Annual Conference at the College Park Marriott in Hyattsville, MD on May 2-4, 2019.
