So, I know your kids are out of school for the summer, and the last thing you want to think about is next year’s school year. But let me challenge you to take a few minutes to do just that.

Aside from being on the Board of Directors for the Exhibit Designers and Producers Association (EDPA), I also sit on the EDPA Foundation Scholarship Committee. It’s a  committee that I have been apart of for five years and feel very strongly about.

The EDPA Foundation Scholarship Fund was created in 2004 to award scholarships for families of industry members to help pursue a college/university education. The EDPAF Scholarship Program applications are now being accepted for the 2014-2015 school year.


Scholarship Application

Any family member of an individual working in the exhibition industry, who has graduated or will graduate high school and has accepted attendance at an accredited 2 or 4 year college, university, or technical school, is eligible to apply. Please follow this link and complete all application requirements by the deadline of JULY 25th.

To qualify, each student must have a GPA of at least 2.8, submit an essay, provide an intended course of study at a university, a financial statement determining financial need, and share financial responsibility while in college. Winners are determined on a weighted point system. Awardees must maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA, or equivalent, and provide a certified college transcript at the end of the school year.

For more details, visit our EDPA Foundation website ( or contact the EDPA Foundation Scholarship Administrator Melissa Nemitz at or (203) 899-8491. All applications must be postmarked by Friday, July 25 to be considered.

This is free money! And college is expense, so please make sure to take a few minutes and apply if you or one of your family members qualifies.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Be well.
