The Equipment Dealers Foundation (EDF), the charitable arm of the Equipment Dealers Association (EDA), has released its scholarship application and guidelines for the 2019–2020 academic year. The deadline to submit all application materials is 3 pm on April 30, 2019.

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 worth USD1,000 and are matched by the sponsoring dealership for a total of USD2,000. 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 agricultural equipment industry. EDF awarded 10 students a total of USD20,000 for the 18-19 academic year.

More information about EDF’s scholarship program, including the guidelines and application, is available here.

Founded in 1900, the EDA is a non-profit trade organisation that represents approximately 4,500 retail equipment dealerships.
