The Student Affairs Collective strives to provide a peer-to-peer community where students and professionals can connect. Over the past few weeks, the leadership team has been evaluating multiple applications for our #SAGrad Scholarship. In the spirit of giving back, this scholarship was established to help send Student Affairs Graduate Students to conferences that they could otherwise not afford.
We thank each applicant for applying for this opportunity, we had an outstanding pool of folks to choose from. We also appreciate the time and energy everyone put into their application. After careful consideration, the recipients are (drumroll please)….
Congrats to the both of you!
