NEDRA DEI SCHOLARSHIPS
Based on NEDRA’s commitment to further the advancement of traditionally underrepresented groups within the prospect research field, we are pleased to offer NEDRA DEI (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion) Scholarships.
What does the scholarship cover? The NEDRA DEI Scholarship will cover the cost of registration for one individual to attend a Research Basics Bootcamp or the 2021 Annual Conference.
Who is eligible? The NEDRA DEI Scholarship is intended to provide support to individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic backgrounds, gender identities, sexual orientations, and/or disabilities. In 2021, the NEDRA DEI Scholarship will be awarded to three recipients. Candidates may be new to prospect development or have experience in the field. Candidates with experience in other development fields who would like to learn more about prospect research are also welcome to apply. NEDRA membership is not required.
How can I apply? Please complete the below form. The application deadline for the 2021 Conference is Friday, February 19, 2021. Applications for Research Basics Bootcamp are accepted year round.
Applicants should attach a short statement (up to 500 words) describing: (a) how attending a NEDRA Research Basics Bootcamp or the Annual Conference will help further their career goals, and (b) why diversity, equity, and inclusion in the fields of development and prospect research is important to them. Applicants should also provide a copy of their resume or a link to their LinkedIn profile.
A committee of NEDRA board members and volunteers will nominate - and the NEDRA board will select - the recipient on the basis of the candidate’s materials.
