International ACAC Global Fund

The International ACAC Global Fund represents the Association’s commitment to providing resources and supporting opportunities for its members. Building upon the established excellence and history of the Scholar Program, the Global Fund will extend financially-supported programming to all members, across all levels of the organization.


The Global Fund consists of three pillars of support: 

  1. Scholar Program
  2. Conference Bursaries
  3. Opportunity Grants

1. Scholar Program

The cornerstone of the Global Fund, the Association’s first priority is to support the Scholar Program which provides funding for 12 high school counseling professionals, working with underrepresented populations, to attend the annual Conference.

2. Conference Bursaries

Each year, funds raised through Global Fund initiatives will be set aside for university, high school, and independent educational consultant members to apply for and receive financial support to attend the annual Conference. This may come in the form of funds to offset registration and lodging costs.

3. Opportunity Grants - Launching Fall 2018

Modeled after NACAC’s Imagine Grants, members of International ACAC are invited to apply for funding to support ideas and initiatives in their communities that support student access to higher education in their home country or abroad. All members are invited to consider how their next great idea can be supported by the Global Fund.


The Global Fund will be as strong as the commitment International ACAC’s own members make to one another. Through a variety of fundraising initiatives, spearheaded at the annual Summer Conferences through such programs as the 5K Run/WalkRaffle, and Golf Tournament members will have multiple ways to give back and support growth of this fund to help new initiatives around the world. Additionally, institutions and individual members will be invited to give directly to the Global Fund or to its individual pillars, assured that their donations will contribute to the advancement of all members near and far in our vast association.
