Vision for the Future Scholarship Fund
Vision for the Future started with a single question asked to me by a colleague that I did not know very well at that time. I was challenged to start something that would change the trajectory of my service since moving into the past presidency and beyond.
As I began my past presidency, I presented a proposal to the board that we start a fund that would give scholarships to its membership through application for continuing education. We named it “Vision for the Future Scholarship Fund.” Our kickoff was spectacular with over 80 people giving to the fund. We raised just about $15,238.00, and over the past 6 years we have continued to raise money totaling about $45,000 dollars. We started with one scholarship and currently have 6 scholarships available to you, our members.
The Vision for the Future Scholarship Fund will provide our constituency with increased opportunity for professional development and will directly promote lifelong learning. Scholarship Funds will be distributed via democratic application and review process within the Scholarship Committee. Funds will be awarded (as available) to members in good standing that provide substantial rationale of need regardless of current career status. The Vision for the Future Scholarship Fund will be built over time by the good will and generosity of the members of CCDA. The funds will be established as a separate scholarship savings fund within our current budget, rolling over from year to year.
