Margaret Addis Memorial Scholar Program

The Margaret Addis Memorial Scholar Program fund enables secondary school counselors from underrepresented areas to attend our Annual Meeting & Conference. "Underrepresented Areas" are defined as rural or urban secondary schools, EOP/TRIO programs, agencies and community/technical colleges in New England. To qualify, candidates should work in settings adversely impacted by budget cuts or limitations, and as such, cannot afford the cost of NEACAC membership or attendance to the Annual Meeting & Conference. It is a primary goal of NEACAC and the IDEA Committee to find ways of providing access to professional development opportunities and the Margaret Addis Memorial Scholarship assists in this effort.  

Sub-committee members review scholarship applications and select recipients. Nominations and self-nominations are accepted. 

Nomination Form is Now Closed

The 2023 Margaret Addis Memorial Scholars were acknowledged at the Annual Meeting on May 25th, 2023. Congratulations to all the Scholars!
