ACA Scholarship Opportunities for Staff and Students!

Applications for the 2013-2014 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 will award Staff Development Scholarships of up to $500, based on the number of applicants and the uses toward which applicants would like to put the funds. 

These scholarships are designed for professional development and intended for paid ACA members who support the vision and valuesof the academic advising community. This is a broad definition, and possible uses include conference attendance, tuition and/or books if you are in school, etc.

*If you are both a staff member and also a UT student, you should submit the Staff Development Scholarship application.

Student Scholarships

ACA is offering $300 scholarships for UT students who assist in advising or other academic 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. To be eligible, candidates must be undergraduate students in good academic standing (GPA of 2.0 or better).
