ACES Diversity Region Conference Scholarships

The Association of Counselor Education and Supervision offers scholarships to increase access for diverse student and new professional members who might not otherwise be able to attend an ACES Region Conference. Awards are based on appropriateness of the educational opportunity related to the applicant’s job, financial need, and contributions of the applicant to their/her/his community and to ACES/Regional ACES. Scholarships of up to $1000 in value may be awarded to cover the cost of attending an ACES Region Conference (i.e., reimbursement of registration, conference hotel lodging, and/or travel). Scholarship recipients must be current ACES members. For 2022, ACES has allocated $10,000 to support attendance.
