Apply for Equipment Dealers Foundation scholarship by April 30, 2018

EDF’s scholarship program supports the training, retraining or advancement of current and potential employees of equipment dealerships.

The Equipment Dealers Foundation (EDF), the charitable arm of the Equipment Dealers Association (EDA), has released updated scholarship guidelines and application for the 2018-2019 academic year. The deadline to submit all application materials is 5 p.m. Central on April 30, 2018.  

EDF’s scholarship program supports the training, retraining or advancement of current and potential employees of equipment dealerships.  Candidates must be sponsored and recommended by a dealership to be eligible to participate. This program is part of EDF’s broader workforce development initiative and aims to provide an incentive for qualified employees to begin or continue their professional growth within the agriculture industry. 

Scholarships from EDF are $1,000 and are matched by the sponsoring dealership for a total of $2,000.  These funds can be used for any educational program; associate, bachelor’s and post-graduate degrees in any field as well as technical training in the ag equipment industry.  Last year, EDF awarded a total of $28,000 to 14 students.
