2017 Conference Scholarships

2017 National Conference Scholarship Application

Strada Education Network is generously underwriting 15 registration scholarships to NCAN’s 2017 National Conference, “Making Waves for Postsecondary Access and Success” which will take place September 11 – 13, 2017 in San Diego, California. By providing these scholarships, Strada Education Network is helping a broader range of individuals and organizations to participate in conference training and share their own successful strategies to raise college-going and graduation rates for students historically underrepresented in higher education. 

This scholarship covers conference registration only – each scholarship winner must cover all of his/her own travel and hotel expenses. Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously attended an NCAN national conference. Award criteria are listed below. 

Up to 15 registration scholarships are available to individuals who: 

  • Are employed by an NCAN member organization  
  • Are currently  providing college and career success support to students 

All scholarship applications must be submitted by 4 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, July 25. NCAN will announce the recipients no later than Friday, July 28 and reminds applicants that they must make hotel reservations by Friday, August 18 to receive the discounted conference room rate.  See NCAN’s web site for additional conference information.
