Help an ABE Student Achieve Their Dream

MCAE's Ruth E. Derfler Memorial Scholarship is given annually in memory of MCAE’s past president and a beloved colleague to many in the adult education field. It is presented to an exemplary ABE student graduate who is enrolling in college, community college, university, or a technical training program. Your donation is a great way to honor a friend or colleague, and support an ABE student's educational dream!
