UCA Foundation Scholarships
CDI Central is proud to announce the availability of three scholarships from UCA Foundation funds:
- One scholarship will be available from the Bill Miller Scholarship Endowment Fund
- Two scholarships will be available from the Pay-it-Forward Fund, made possible by past Year 3 class donations. Preference will be given to returning Year 2 and Year 3 participants.
These scholarships are a great opportunity to off-set some of the costs of attending the institute, particularly for those professionals who may not be able to attend without assistance.
Interested applicants can complete one application to be eligible for all three scholarships.
Scholarships cover the cost of CDI registration fees, and do not cover other expenses, such as travel or lodging.
