Each year, the ABCA awards the Harvey Lillard Scholarship award to several very deserving SABCA students. The award is given annually at the ABCA National Convention each summer. Although scholarships are awarded at the National Convention, SABCA members do not have to be present to win.

Scholarships are awarded under the following categories:

  • Academic: Awarded to students who have demonstrated an outstanding history of academic achievement with the most exceptional GPA, most impressive series of extracurricular activities and a history of public service.
  • Leadership: Takes a student’s academic record into consideration, but also gives more weight to community service and leadership qualities.
  • Professional Advancement: Takes students’ ideas of how they (as students or new graduates) will contribute to the advancement of the ABCA in upholding its mission and purpose into consideration.

Students applying for the scholarship must be active dues-paying members in their local SABCA chapter as well as active dues-paying members to the National ABCA organization. All applicants must have completed their 3rd Quarter/2nd Trimester in an accredited DC program to qualify.
