Counselor Participation Fund

The SACAC Counselor Participation Fund (CPF) provides financial assistance to secondary counselors and college representatives who have limited financial resources to attend SACAC professional development opportunities.  Funding is available for the following professional development opportunities: SACAC Annual Conference, Summer Seminar, Sweet Tea Tour, and Dry Run.

Preference will be given to counselors working in public high schools and community-based organizations as well as those who serve traditionally underrepresented student populations.

Grant funds may be used for registration fees, lodging, transportation (mileage or airfare), ground transportation/parking, and meal allowance, depending upon the needs of the recipient.
