Scholarships

I-LEAD® Registration Scholarship

The Institute for Leadership Education and Development (I-LEAD®) is ACUI's premier student program, designed to emphasize the key concept areas of leadership, community development, and change. I-LEAD® offers an opportunity for the college students to focus on personal growth and other issues facing our world. The Institute prepares students to develop skills that will serve them as leaders in any situation, regardless of role, organization, or environment. 

This year's Institute was held July 24–29 at the University of Puget Sound. More information about the program can be found at www.acui.org/ilead.

The application may be found here. The deadline to apply is April 22.

IPDS: New Professionals Orientation Registration Scholarship

IPDS: New Professionals Orientation has been refined over its more than 40-year existence. The program offers participants an opportunity to share information, exchange materials, learn new techniques and theories, discuss opportunities and threats, and network with colleagues in a challenging and supportive environment.

Anyone who is new to the college union and student activities profession should attend regardless of title. Because the program format facilitates a small-group feel, the bonds formed with colleagues can last a lifetime, often with IPDS "classes" holding reunions.

The application may be found here. The deadline to apply is April 22.
