Applicants must be active in the CDI field, working in the profession. They must be able to demonstrate that fact with a note from their manager or supervisor verifying employment. The note must include the organization name and dates of employment.
Candidates who have completed the ACDIS CDI Apprenticeship certificate program, but are not yet working in the CDI field, will be eligible for consideration for the ACDIS membership and online Boot Camp awards.
Previous ACDIS Scholarship recipients may not reapply. ACDIS advisory board members, ACDIS staff, and other (currently serving) board and committee members are not eligible.
Scholarships will be awarded on an annual basis and disbursed in the form of a product or registration (depending on the scholarship awarded) directly to the recipient each February.
Recipients must continue to work in the CDI profession during the scholarship term to maintain eligibility. For example, should an individual receive a conference registration, they would be required to remain in the profession until after the conference has ended.
