The 2018-19 NEDRA Board is thankful for all of our wonderful members and volunteers that make NEDRA so special. The Board is also 100% committed to honoring Heather Reisz’s legacy and making scholarships available to new researchers in the field. We would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the Heather Reisz Memorial Scholarships over the years, and would ask that you consider making a donation again this year as part of our #GivingTuesday appeal.
Again this year you will have the chance to give in honor of a mentor.
Your support will help provide scholarships for research ‘newbies’ to attend the Annual Conference and Research Basics Bootcamp at no cost, for years to come. Whether you knew Heather, are a proud Bootcamp graduate, or just love research and want to provide the necessary support for new members in our field, please consider donating today.
