2020 E-Live Scholarships

Scholarships for Ellucian Live 2020, April 5-8, 2020 in Orlando, FL

The PowerCampus Users Group is again pleased to announce scholarships which will cover the Ellucian Live 2020 conference registration cost for two attendees, each from a different institution. We are hoping that this will assist PowerCampus users to participate who have institutional budget restrictions that place Ellucian Live out of reach.

As a scholarship applicant, you may choose from two specific roles:

  • PowerCampus Visibility Coordinator– Assist PowerCampus attendees to be more visible to each other and the larger Ellucian community.
  • PowerCampus Attendee Connection– Reach out to first-time PowerCampus E-Live attendees using various methods and encourage community interaction. Assist in planning meet-ups during the conference.

In order to apply for one of these scholarships, please tell us for which scholarship role you would like to apply, and how you would use that role to contribute to our PowerCampus users community. You may apply for one or both of the roles listed. Please include an assurance that your institution would be able to cover your transportation, hotel, food costs, etc. Each scholarship will only cover the actual conference registration fee expense.

Winners will be chosen by the PowerCampus Users Group Board. Preference will be given to applicants whose institutions who are dues-paying members of PCUG for the 2019-20 year. Please submit your entries to Kelly Quigley (kquigley@harcum.edu). Deadline for submission is December 1, 2019. Winners will be notified as quickly as possible in order to allow registration prior to December 15, 2019.
