Although winter hasn't even begun, we're already looking ahead to spring and the 2018 conference in Newport. Remember, if you're planning to attend, our hotel block is selling out FAST. Please be sure to book your room as soon as possible! See the Annual Conference page for directions on making your reservation.
Are you new to the prospect research, management, or analytics community? Been in the field for a while but concerned about the cost of attending the annual conference? NEDRA invites you to apply for a scholarship! Thanks to generous donors, we are thrilled to provide the following scholarship opportunities for the conference. Two types of scholarships are available to defray conference costs:
The Heather Reisz Memorial Scholarships for newer staff:
With support from many donors (including Heather's family and many NEDRA members), NEDRA established the Heather Reisz Memorial Scholarships in honor of one of NEDRA's most active and beloved members, Heather Reisz, who passed away in 2013.
Who is eligible? These scholarships, awarded to two recipients, are intended for those who have been in prospect research (or a related field) for less than two years.
What is covered? The cost of registration and lodging for the 2018 Annual Conference and pre-conference Research Basics Bootcamp (to be held on Wednesday, April 25, 2018 at Hotel Viking), as well as a one-year NEDRA membership. In addition, travel expenses will be reimbursed up to $300.
This scholarship is need-blind and applications, including a letter of recommendation, are due by Wednesday, January 31, 2018.
To learn more about and apply for the Heather Reisz Memorial Scholarships, please visit NEDRA's Heather Reisz Memorial Scholarship page. For more information on Heather, her life, and her legacy, please visit her memorial page.
The 2018 Helen Brown Group-NEDRA Conference Scholarship:
With immense gratitude to NEDRA member and industry mentor Helen Brown of The Helen Brown Group, NEDRA is pleased to offer a scholarship opportunity to one NEDRA member of any length of service who wishes to attend our annual conference! Helen generously provided this scholarship for both the 2016 and 2017 conferences, and the NEDRA community appreciates her support again for 2018.
Who is eligible? All NEDRA members are welcome to apply!
What is covered? The Helen Brown Group-NEDRA Conference Scholarship covers the cost of registration for one individual for the 2018 NEDRA Conference (not including the pre-Conference Bootcamp), plus the cost of lodging and reimbursement of travel expenses up to $300.
This scholarship is need-blind. Applications, including a letter of recommendation, are due by Wednesday, January 31, 2018.
To learn more about and apply for this Scholarship, please visit the Helen Brown Group-NEDRA Conference Scholarship page.
Please remember: Both scholarships require a letter of recommendation, so please plan accordingly to meet application deadlines.
Please apply today for one of these great opportunities! Our organization would not continue to grow and thrive without the involvement and support of our members. We are happy to offer scholarships each year to help bring new participants to our conference and to see first-hand the value of NEDRA membership, programming, and active involvement! We look forward to hearing from you.
