As part of its mission to promote entrepreneurship, the Coleman Foundation is generously providing scholarships for 100 community college professionals to attend the 2008 NACCE Conference. The purpose of these scholarships is to introduce new attendees to the network of community colleges interested in entrepreneurship.
"Our conference will be full of ideas and resources for attendees to take home and apply at their community colleges,” said NACCE Executive Director Heather Van Sickle. "This is the second year the Coleman Foundation has provided the scholarships for newcomers, and we can’t thank them enough for helping us make it possible for people to discover the value of our annual conference.”
The scholarships are reserved for new attendees only; 25 scholarships are reserved specifically for attendees from colleges in the conferences host state of Texas. Three categories of people will benefit from attending the 5th Annual NACCE Conference; they are:
• Persons interested in sharing/discovering funding sources to increase the quality and quantity of entrepreneurship education programs on their campus.
• Faculty, from any department, including adjunct, interested in infusing entrepreneurship into their courses.
• Leaders at community colleges looking to raise the bar for their college by acting more entrepreneurially; assisting faculty to increase the entrepreneurship education offerings.
The Coleman Foundation scholarships pay for the cost of registration to the NACCE Conference. (Please note there is a nominal non-refundable fee of $50.00.) Scholarships are granted on a first come, first served basis and will be processed in order of receipt as long as the application is complete, legible, and demonstrates an interest in moving forward with entrepreneurship at your institution.
