Summer Scholars Program
Each year, CASE District I awards five scholarships to attend one of the Summer Institutes. Traditionally held on college campuses, this year, attendees can join the Online Institutes from their own campuses (and home offices).
CASE's Online Institutes are based on the Summer Institutes' curriculum. Same great content, same great faculty! Designed for early-career professionals and career-changers who want to connect with experts, the Online Institutes will provide attendees with the foundation they need to further their careers and impact their institutions.
Who is eligible?
