Dear County and District Superintendents and Charter School Administrators:
2023–24 Arthur S. Marmaduke High School Counselor Award
The California Department of Education is pleased to continue supporting the annual Arthur S. Marmaduke High School Counselor Award. Nominations for the 2023–24 Award are now open.
The California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) is the state agency responsible for administering financial aid programs for students attending public and private universities, colleges, and vocational schools in California.
Each year, CSAC recognizes an outstanding California high school counselor who demonstrates exemplary skills in helping students fulfill their dreams of going to college with the Arthur S. Marmaduke High School Counselor Award. CSAC solicits nominations recommending a California high school counselor who effectively serves students in preparing for and pursuing higher education.
Candidates are evaluated based on their work to educate students about financial aid opportunities, their participation in events such as college fairs and workshops, their impact on financial aid application completion rates, what they have done to help students prepare for college, and their support for underrepresented and first-generation families.

Marmaduke High School Counselor Award winner, review the eligibility criteria on the CSAC Arthur S.
