2017 Bob Ady Scholarship Program
The Mid-America Economic Development Council is pleased to announce that we are now accepting scholarship nominations for the fifth annual Bob Ady Scholarship Program. The scholarship program is named in memory of Bob Ady, a champion for economic development in the U.S. and especially the Midwest. The purpose of this scholarship program is to assist new economic development professionals in furthering their professional development. This program is available for Mid-America EDC members and non-members, and applicants new to economic development will be given preference. Applicants will be evaluated based on their interest in economic development overall, as well as their interest in the Mid-America EDC organization.
The Mid-America Economic Development Council scholarship program includes registration for the 2017 Competitiveness Conference & Site Selector Forum to be held December 3-5, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois.
Please note that scholarship recipients are responsible for travel costs – including hotel, parking and transportation; however, a limited amount of travel expenses will be included with each scholarship. Scholarship recipients selected will be notified. Recipients are eligible to receive one scholarship.
The Mid-America Economic Development Council Board of Directors will review all scholarship nominations and will contact the designated person (as indicated on the nomination form) no later than October 13, 2017 to notify whether the recipient has been chosen to receive a scholarship this year. (Nominees not selected are eligible to be nominated the following year.)
For consideration, please submit your nomination directly at http://maedc.formstack.com/forms/2017bobadyscholarship no later than August 18, 2017.
Please feel free to contact the Mid-America EDC offices with any questions, or email your state’s Mid-America EDC board members – you may find contact information on our Board page.
