Marion Flagg Scholarship Program
Chair: Rachel Cleaver, George Mason University (VA)
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. This scholarship specifically targets counselors who work with historically underserved students, minority students or students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Each awarded scholarship includes one year of free membership in PCACAC, one Annual Spring Conference registration, hotel lodging (two nights, double occupancy), and transportation.
The Inclusion, Access and Success Committee oversees the selection of scholarship recipients. The recipients may be high school counselors, two- or four-year college admission professionals, independent counselors or individuals working in community-based organizations such as KIPP, Upward Bound, the College Success Foundation, AVID, etc.
Nominations for the 2017-18 Marion Flagg Scholarship Program are currently being accepted and the form to nominate can be accessed here. Nominations will close on February 6. Winners will be notified by the end of February and award certificates will be presented to the recipients at the 2017 Annual Conference at the Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, VA.
