ACA Scholarship Opportunities for Staff and Students

Applications for the 2010-2011 ACA Staff and Student Development Scholarships are now being accepted.  Each year, ACA awards multiple scholarships to ACA professionals and UT students for the purpose of assisting with academic, educational, and professional development endeavors. 

Staff Scholarships

ACA is offering two advising scholarships this year to paid members of the organization. These scholarships are designed for professional development and intended for ACA members who support the mission and goals of the academic advising community.  *If you are both a staff member and also a UT student, you should submit the Staff Development Scholarship application.

Student Scholarships

In addition, ACA is offering two scholarships for UT students who assist in advising or other student support services.  It is the hope of ACA that these scholarships will assist students in their academic pursuits and endeavors.  Staff are encouraged to have students who work in their department/office consider applying for this scholarship.
