These scholarships are to be used to attend Regional Summits, sponsored by ACE.

The applicant must demonstrate previous leadership in higher education, and have already established future educational leadership goals. The applicant, if selected for a scholarship, also must agree to prepare and present an information session about their experience at the MI-ACE Annual Conference in June.

Midwest Regional Summit

ACE Regional Summits bring together small groups of senior higher education leaders to facilitate deep conversations and devise solutions for the most pressing and strategic issues on your campus. This year’s event will be in October. The scholarship application is due six/eight weeks before the Summit so that the selection process can take place and allow the recipient to make travel arrangements.
