Opportunity and Inclusion Scholars Program
CASE District VIII values efforts that foster and promote diversity in the advancement/communications profession. The Opportunity and Inclusion (O&I) Scholars Program supports professionals from underrepresented populations in the field of advancement and communications. The purpose of the O&I Scholars Program is to encourage diverse professionals, particularly those who have less than four years of experience in the field of advancement and communications to attend the annual district conference.
CASE District VIII is offering 10 scholarships open to all advancement/communications professionals and four scholarships open to alumni relations professionals to cover the cost of registration and a travel stipend to help cover the cost of travel expenses to attend the annual district conference in Greater Seattle, Washington, on Jan. 29-31, 2020.
