Merit System Academy Scholarships

posted Feb 24, 2021, 1:59 PM by PCASC Secretary   [ updated Feb 24, 2021, 2:25 PM ]
The Personnel Commissions Association of Southern California (PCASC) is pleased to announce that it will provide two scholarships for qualified PCASC members to attend the 2021 California School Personnel Commissioners Association (CSPCA) Merit Academy.

The 2021 Merit Academy will be held virtually over eight (8) ½ day sessions starting on March 20th.  Half of the sessions will be held during the week and the other half will be held on Saturdays.  There will also be a 30 minute orientation on March 11th at 1 PM.  Please see the attached Merit Academy Brochure for additional details/dates.

In order to apply for a scholarship, it is necessary to complete an application packet.   Included in the packet is an application and a Financial Need Statement.  The Application and Financial Need Statement must be completed in full and returned, along with a letter of recommendation from the applicant’s current employer, to PCASC in care of the committee member listed below.

Each applicant will be evaluated on how well he/she meets the following criteria:
  • You must be a classified employee or a personnel commissioner in a district that is a member of PCASC.
  • If an employee:
    • You are pursuing a human resources leadership role in a merit system school district.
    • Your educational goals demonstrate the pursuit of a career in human resources.
As there are only two scholarships available each year, it may be necessary to narrow the field of qualified applicants.  The Financial Need Statement will be reviewed and taken into consideration in the selection of a qualified applicant with the greatest financial need.

The Scholarship Review Committee will review application materials and inform each applicant whether or not they have been selected to receive the PCASC scholarship.

Please submit your application packet by Friday, March 5, 2021 to:
