Awards and Scholarships
Region IV offers numerous awards and scholarships to recognize and advance professionals and students within the region.
Looking for a great way to volunteer while building connections with your peers from across the region? ACUI’s regions have a variety of ways for you to volunteer, including as regional director, roles on the Regional Leadership Team, or workings to plan the Regional Conference.
Currently, Region VIII is accepting applications for the following positions; applications closed on November 30.
Note: The submission process is updated this year through our new membership platform—which means applications can autofill with your profile information, be saved as pending for edits until you officially submit, and be stored for your future access. In order to submit an application, you will need to create an account login, if you don’t already have one.
Our region is offering the opportunity to volunteer on an episodic basis. This means if you are interested in volunteering with Region VIII but cannot commit to a long-term volunteer role, complete the ACUI Region VIII Volunteer Interest Form linked below and you will be contacted by the volunteer coordinator to help when we need volunteers for a short-term project. Episodic volunteer opportunities are open to both undergraduate and graduate students, as well as professionals. Led by the volunteer coordinator, these volunteers may be called upon to help with drive-in workshops, awards and scholarship selection committees, educational session program reviewing, or other educational programs. These episodic opportunities will have expectations, but no official requirements in terms of time or attendance.
To join one of the teams listed below, please complete the Episodic Interest Application. The Region VIII Volunteer Coordinator will review your application and be in contact regarding this volunteer opportunity and connect you to the appropriate Regional Leadership Team member based on your interest.
