Apply today for the 2022 cohort of the Bethaida “Bea” González Diversity in Leadership Scholars program
UPCEA is proud to once again be offering UPCEA members the Bethaida “Bea” González Diversity in Leadership Scholars Program. Representative and diverse leadership is a cornerstone of UPCEA’s Commitment to Diversity and Inclusive Excellence.
The goal of the Diversity Scholars program is to equip diverse professionals at any stage of their career with the skills and knowledge needed to move into leadership positions on campus, in the field of professional, continuing, and online (PCO) education, and in UPCEA.
Applications for the 2022 cohort of Diversity in Leadership Scholars are being accepted through July 1, 2022. A selection committee will consider all applications and choose 5-7 individuals to each receive a full scholarship for the UPCEA PCO Professional Certificate or the PCO Leader Certificate* (both certificates consist of five courses).
Individuals who identify as a member of one or more diverse groups are encouraged to apply by submitting a curriculum vitae, a brief note of support (300 words or fewer) from a senior leader or supervisor at their institution, and a brief essay of no more than one page (single spaced) that addresses the following questions:
- How will completing this program help you achieve your career aspirations?
- How do you hope to contribute to your campus and the communities it serves?
- How do you hope to contribute to the PCO profession?
This program is only open to UPCEA members.
Application Deadline: Friday, July 1, 2022.
Recipients will be selected and notified by Friday, July 22, 2022.
