THE CONNER SCHOLARSHIP FUND
The demand is high. According to our surveys the top reason members can not attend our Annual Meeting is a lack of institutional financial support. A new generation of diverse and motivated higher education professionals will change the face of the profession, but only if they have access to the knowledge and network of professionals that AACRAO can provide them. The Conner Fund helps create those connections that can translate into more rewarding career experiences, better outcomes for our institutions and our better results for the students we serve. John Douglas Conner was named the first Executive Director of AACRAO in 1966 and served until his retirement in 1988. The Conner Scholarship Fund provides support for AACRAO members to participate in the AACRAO Annual Meeting.
