Carol Powers-Ernst Scholarship


EDSymposium,  Asheville, NC

June 2020


The Minneapolis St Paul Chapter created a scholarship fund to provide financial assistance to qualifying members for the express purpose of continuing education.


Carol Powers-Ernst was a valued member who was instrumental in keeping our chapter going in the early nineties when it was close to folding.  She held offices; she sought out educational speakers for meetings and mentored many of us along the way.  Her firm, Michaud Cooley Erickson, supported her through her efforts and was a host for many gatherings of the Chapter.


After a courageous battle with ovarian cancer, Carol passed away on August 19, 2000.  This scholarship is named after her and the spirit she gave to everything she did.


Applications for the 2020 Scholarship are available and must be submitted to the President by April 20, 2020.  The winner will be announced on April 24, 2020.  [application]
