The ACA International Education Foundation once again is offering scholarships to advance the higher education of people employed by ACA member agencies and ACA member affiliate companies and their dependent children.
To be eligible for the program, an applicant must be one of the following:
- A current employee of an ACA member agency or ACA member affiliate company and employed in a collection or credit management function; or
- A dependent child of such.
Scholarship recipients must enroll for a minimum of 12 credit hours at an accredited college, university, vocational-technical college or community college within 12 months following receipt of the award.
The program is open to applicants throughout the United States. Applications must be received by June 15, 2013 to be considered in the next award cycle.
This year, a total of $5,000 will be awarded
$3,000 to one first place recipient and two second place awards of $1,000 each.
Anyone meeting the eligibility criteria is encouraged to apply. Winners will be selected based on their cumulative grade point average and a 2- to 3-page essay on the topic of financial literacy.
The scholarship, which honors the memory of ACA member Robert E. Loomer and ACA staff member Irvin "Dempsey" Mortenson, replaces the original program that began in 1985 and was open only to ACA employees and their dependents.
The scholarship application form can be downloaded here.
