Applications and nominations from others were welcomed. Preference for winners will be given to applicants/nominees who represent one or more of the following:

1. High school or community college counselors/advisors who serve underrepresented populations, including but not limited to students of color, rural students, public school students, and transfer students.
2. First-time RMACAC Conference attendee/have not participated in a previous regional conference.

Application Process:

This application must have been completed by a nominator or the applicant themselves.  Each application will be reviewed by RMACAC’s Inclusivity, Diversity, Equity, and Access (IDEA) Committee. College admission professionals, community-based organization professionals, and high school counselors who seek to improve and create opportunities for college access for traditionally underrepresented and underserved populations will be prioritized.
