PEDA Offers Young Professional Scholarships
As economic development organizations and like-minded partners doing work within the industry seek to consistently create meaningful economic impacts despite decreases in many traditional funding sources, PEDA recognizes the dues associated with membership may create a financial barrier to some young professionals seeking to advance their careers.
Through a “Young Professionals Membership Scholarship”, PEDA seeks to make membership more accessible to professionals aged 40 or under who, in the absence of assistance, would be unable to enjoy the benefits associated with membership in 2021. This one-time scholarship is a one-year commitment to cover the cost of one calendar year 2021 PEDA membership for one individual aged 40 or under. Up to 10 scholarships may be awarded and application must be made no later than December 31st.
