Student / Young Professional Conference Scholarship Award

ACCI student members are not only the future leaders in the field of consumer affairs, they are the lifeblood of our organization. We are committed to helping students enhance their professional development through participation in ACCI. Therefore, we are pleased to sponsor the Student Travel Grants.

Qualified students may receive grants for travel expense reimbursement for the purpose of attending the annual ACCI conference. Grant amounts are determined by the amount of money in the scholarship pool. Students will have the opportunity to meet fellow students and professionals in the field, keep current on consumer research and related issues, and learn how ACCI can help them to make valuable contacts for future successes.

ACCI membership is required to receive a Student Travel Grant. Students who are selected to receive the grant, but who are not currently members of ACCI, will be required to pay membership dues at the time of conference registration in order to remain eligible. Student membership dues are $25 per year. These scholarships provide a registration fee waiver to attend the ACCI Conference, and partial travel reimbursement.
