Education for the Future of our Industry

Word on the Street by Kevin Carty

EDPA Foundation Scholarship

I have been fortunate to sit on the EDPA Foundation Scholarship Committee for many years. It’s something near and dear to my heart: supporting those within our industry getting their education.

To date, the EDPAF Scholarship Committee has awarded nearly $110,000 in scholarships! Isn’t that awesome!! And it has been awarded to a myriad of people from the kids of industry employees, industry employees themselves, as well as spouses who have chosen to further their education.

This year is no different. An open call for applications will be announced soon, but I thought I might get a head start for those in the Classic Exhibits Network who might be interested. Here is the application.

Please take a second to review. There are people in our network who have applied and received scholarships. Some scholarships have been for tuition, others for books.

The deadline is July 1, but don’t delay until then. Every year the number of applications continues to grow. Please don’t pass up this opportunity if it applies to YOU or Your Family.

Hope you all had a great weekend.

Be well.
