Why SC|CS?

“I am SO GRATEFUL to be a recipient of the SC|CS this year!  This scholarship opened the door of funding for me.  After recieving word that I was a recipient, I shared my excitement at a district level counseling meeting as “something I was looking forward to.”  Upon sharing, my coordinator suggested I fill out a form for funding.  I was so excited to find out that my district was going to reimburse me for airfare, Super Shuttle transportation, and hotel costs during the conference!!!  If I had not applied and won this scholarship, I would not have pushed it further.  Thank you for the opportunity!  It was an AMAZING conference.  I feel BLESSED to have been able to attend as a 2nd year counselor!!  Thank you so much!!!”

“Without the scholarship, I never would’ve have gone. I knew I didn’t have the money for ASCA, it was too far away, and I just wouldn’t have pushed myself to go. I had no idea how significant and meaningful it would be. To have that common bond with counselors all across America, to know we all share the same goals, was so impactful. I wish everyone that is a school counselor could experience it. And now I’m hooked! I want to go back every year!!! On to find other scholarships!”

Donations are accepted all year - considering donating today.

Are you a like-minded business or organization and want to sponsor one or more school counselors in attending #ASCA21? For only $369, you can pay for one school counselor registration and be a part of making a difference. Contact us to learn more.

School counselors are depending on you.

If you work in an high school setting – you will recognize the truth in this paragraph. If you don’t, let me share the magic of scholarships. There is a misconception that a scholarship must cover the whole cost of whatever you are pursuing or else it is no good. That cannot be further from the truth. Almost all scholarships for education or other activities will not fill a full amount needed to participate. However, the magic comes in two forms:

  1. Multiple smaller scholarships can add up to an amount you need to cover your schooling or activity. Getting one can often spur the recipient into searching more out to make their goal a reality.
  2. Almost more importantly, in the instance of SC|CS 2021, receiving a scholarship can create momentum to seek out additional support from employers or other avenues to cover the remainder of the cost of ASCA 2021.

We are counting on you!

A good scholarship depends on donations from invested and interested partners, but also depends on like minded people to share and support our donation and scholarship application process! If you cannot donate at this time – we would strongly appreciate you sharing this scholarship opportunity with your colleagues and friends. Once the scholarship opens – please also share the opportunity to apply for funding to attend ASCA 2021. If you are a business and would like to sponsor one or more school counselors – please contact Jeff Ream directly.

#SCCS21 is counting on me (and you!) - share the scholarship opportunity today. #scchat #ASCA21 Click To Tweet

On behalf of Carol Miller and myself – we thank you for donating, sharing, and supporting school counselor access to high quality professional development.
