 Scholarships Available

 

Limited partial scholarships are awarded to defray the cost of the program fee for those who would not otherwise be able to attend. You must complete and submit both program application and scholarship application by May 21, 2018, to be considered. Applicants are advised to submit their program fee after scholarship awards have been announced on June 6, 2018.

These scholarships are to enable a select group of candidates from all sectors of higher education to participate in ACE’s signature leadership development programs. The Fidelity Investments scholarships are tied to ACE’s broader leadership development initiative designed to advance women and persons of color into the presidency and other leadership roles. Preference will be given to candidates from under- represented populations within higher education’s senior leadership ranks and to those candidates whose institutions lack the necessary resources to cover program attendance costs.
