 Scholarship for Professionals and Students

CCDA awards scholarships to one professional in career development who does not have access to funds for professional development AND to one student enrolled in at least 6 credits in a program of study related to career development who plans to pursue a career in the field.

Scholarships awarded for 2020-2021 apply to one year of membership dues (from date of award) and registration for the CCDA Spring Training, a value of more than $100.

Scholarship Process 
Those interested in applying can submit the CCDA Scholarship Application, which typically goes live in the spring of each year.  A committee of Board members will select the recipients and they will be notified in late March in time to register for the Spring Training. If you have questions, please contact the CCDA Membership & Scholarship Chair.
