Imagine Grant RECIPIENTS

“Why do I give to the Imagine Fund? Easy! I went to my first NACAC Conference in St. Louis after receiving an Imagine Grant of my own. My eyes were opened to the value of NACAC personally and professionally. I always make time for NACAC and I am happy to give back.”

"The 2017 Imagine Grant allowed us to successfully implement the P.R.I.M.E. (Post-Secondary Readiness through Intervention, Mentoring and Exposure) Summer College Readiness Workshop and Tour and provide participants with information and skills that will enable them to build a bridge from high school to various postsecondary options. Students were excited to learn about the various career options and visit postsecondary institutions in our area. Many of them are already asking to participate again next year!" - Grant for Special Projects

"Thank you for helping me to be the best counselor possible for my students, Imagine Grant! I found the NACAC National Conference to be an invaluable resource for my professional growth as a college counselor. Through the conference, I was able to tour six college campuses, which increased my firsthand knowledge to be able to better counsel my students. I also reconnected with colleagues, met new ones, and broadened my network to share resources and expertise with." - Grant for Professional Development, 2017 National Conference
