Scholarship for Professionals and Students
CCDA awards scholarships to a limited number of professionals in career development who do not have access to funds for professional development or to students enrolled in at least 6 credits in a program of study related to career development and who plan to pursue a career in the field.
Scholarships awarded for 2022-2023 apply to one year of membership dues (from date of award) and registration for the 2022 CCDA Spring Training (Thursday, April 7th), a value of more than $100. All applicants will be informed of final decision prior to the early bird registration deadline.
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.
