The Students of Color Conference is an annual event hosted by the Multicultural Student Services Directors’ Council (MSSDC), a state-wide consortium of community and technical college multicultural directors. Each year, more than 800 students from colleges across Washington State come together at SOCC to develop leadership skills and strategies for self-empowerment.

If selected, students will receive a full scholarship to cover the costs of attending the conference including: registration fees, transportation to and from the conference, meals during the conference, and lodging.
