ACDIS update: Apply to the ACDIS CDI scholarship program now!
The ACDIS CDI scholarship program is now open for applications!
The purpose of the annual ACDIS CDI Scholarship program is to assist CDI professionals in enhancing their careers with further education and to increase collaboration among their colleagues by sharing knowledge.
There are four different types of scholarships you may apply for:
- Introduction to CDI Scholarship: A one-year ACDIS membership + enrollment in the ACDIS CDI Apprenticeship program
- Professional Development Scholarship: Registration to an online CDI Boot Camp of the recipient's choice
- Outpatient CDI Scholarship: Registration to the ACDIS Symposium: Outpatient CDI
- Melissa Varnavas Scholarship: Registration to the ACDIS national conference
To be eligible, 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.
