About The Mark Lively Memorial Scholarship Program

NCAC encourages students' participation in NCAC and USAEE conferences. To further this goal, NCAC provides grants to DC area university students attending these conferences as a presenter or a participant. Up to five grants of $750 are available to help students attend USAEE conferences.

2016's USAEE Conference is October 23-26 in Tulsa, Oklahoma

To apply for a scholarship, fill out the Application form (link below) and email your resume as well as a letter of recommendation from your advisor to NCAC, Claudia Hitaj. You may also send Claudia any questions you have about the process. The Mark Lively Memorial Scholarship Application deadline is August 5, 2016.

The NCAC council will review your application and notify you if you have been selected by August 12, 2016. After receiving notification, the student must register for the conference (pay the student conference fee), and then forward the registration confirmation email to NCAC Treasurer at Treasurer@ncac-usaee.org. The Treasurer will then mail checks to the selected students. Please note that registration fees for the USAEE Conference increase after August 19, 2016.
