AAWCC Oregon Memorial Scholarship Fund

In celebration of Marcia Keith and Artis vanRassel

The AAWCC Oregon Board is pleased to be able to offer scholarships to those who are unable to obtain funding for attendance from the college, local chapter, or staff development fund. While the Board wishes to assist as many individuals as possible, it may not be able to fulfill all requests. Applications are due four weeks prior to fall conference and summer conference.

Selection and Notification

In reviewing the applications, the committee will consider the scholarship funds budgeted for the conference and the financial need of the applicant. If necessary, priority may also be given based on any of the following:

  • Date application received (first come, first served)
  • First-time conference attendee
  • First-time scholarship application
  • Representative from a traditionally under-represented community college

Scholarship Awards and Reimbursement Process

  • Scholarship awards for conference registration will be paid directly by AAWCC. Recipients should work with the VP of Finance for arranging registration accommodations.

Additional Details

  • Scholarships are not transferable to another individual.
  • Scholarship applicants who are not awarded a scholarship will be allowed to register for the conference at the discounted early registration rate.
  • Recipients may be asked to volunteer at the conference.


For scholarship consideration, please complete the online application four weeks prior to fall or summer conference.
