Heartland Conference Scholarships Available

Representatives from Missouri Campus Compact member schools: 
Missouri Campus Compact will provide one early bird registration fee scholarship for each of our member schools. However, we know that not every school will have a representative attending the conference. So, if there is funding leftover after assigning one scholarship to each school in attendance, we will release more scholarships per school as funding allows. You and other members from your campus can go ahead and register. You will be prompted with a section that asks you if you want the invoice to be sent directly to you or to another entity. Even if you are expecting a scholarship, fill this out as if you are being billed. If you have more than one representative from your school in attendance, we will let you know how many scholarships (above the one already guaranteed) will be provided to your school and how many registration fees will be billed to you by Nebraska Campus Compact. We will assign the scholarships in September. 

Please email Tabitha Underwood with any questions, TabithaUnderwood@Missouristate.edu




New Resources Webpage

We have been hard at work this summer putting together a resources webpage for you and your campus. This site is full of links to examples, program models, professional development materials, and much more. Please remember that this will always be a work in progress. If you find sections to be lacking or find a great resource you would like us to post, please let us know. We will test out the site this year and may re-tool it later based on user feedback
