NCEDA recognizes and supports the advancement of outstanding practitioners by annually awarding three scholarships for professional development.

These scholarships honor individuals whose contributions to the profession, commitment to high professional and personal standards, and professional success earned the respect of peers and associates:

Scholarship recipients are recognized at NCEDA meetings, in the newsletter and in news releases to local media.

Applications are received in February and awarded at the MidWinter Conference in March. The 2017-18 application will be posted later this year.
