The NAEDA Equipment Dealers Foundation (EDF) Scholarship program assists in the training, retraining, or advancement of employees or potential employees of equipment dealers in order to create a larger pool of qualified, committed, long-term employees for those dealerships. Assistance comes in the form of grants by EDF, NAEDA affiliates and dealership scholarships for individual classes, vocational training curriculums, associate degrees, bachelor degrees and post-graduate degrees.
This year EDF provided funding assistance to 82 scholarship recipients for students sponsored by dealer members of four NAEDA regional affiliates representing six states. Student applicants who were first sponsored by equipment dealers applied to their regional equipment dealer association. Those awarded scholarships by the affiliate associations were then forwarded to EDF for application of additional funds.
The NAEDA Equipment Dealers Foundation is pleased to provide this assistance to the future employees in our industry.
