Apply for 2019 Opportunity Grants

2019 Opportunity Grants

 

Do you have an idea you wish you could execute but you don't have the funding? 

Consider applying for an Opportunity Grant from International ACAC! Grants are available up to $3,000 USD to support projects, programs, or proposals that bring resources or professional development to students, families, teachers and counselors around the world when perhaps they would not otherwise have access.

Past Opportunity Grant participants have coordinated professional development programs for local counselors; coordinated information sessions from global university admission for students, teachers and administrators in six regions of Benin; and brought students to a college fair in Mongolia. 

oppgrant1Ray Marx, Director of College Counseling at Colegio Americano de Quito in Quito, Ecuador, held a professional development workshop at Academia Cotopaxi for four Quito area high schools. Counselors, IT staff and administrative assistants had a full day of training from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. According to Ray, “Everyone present felt that the training was excellent as we were able to understand the Maia Learning platform from a student, teacher, and counselor perspective. In addition, our IT departments gained a sense of the steps and information that we need to migrate to the new platform. Once again, a heartfelt thanks to International ACAC and the Opportunity Grant committee for organizing and distributing these valuable funds.”



In Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, Gantumur Bat-Erdene of the Educational Advising Resource Center, sought funding to rent 7 buses so roughly 500 students could meet with college representatives at the Global University Fair held October 24-26, 2019. The students met with 37 school representatives from 13 countries.
