NAADD is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the 2012 Diversity Initiative. 2012 marks the sixth year of the NAADD Diversity Initiative, which awards Convention stipends to minority and female fundraisers involved in our organization. NAADD is committed to creating and reinforcing an inclusive environment in which opportunities for networking and professional development are fostered and nurtured.
To be eligible for the Diversity Initiative, applicants must be current NAADD members and employed full-time.
Recipients will receive a stipend, which is designated for Convention related expenses (hotel, Convention registration and travel). Acceptance of the stipend also requires that the applicant commit to participating in the Fundamentals of Athletics Development (FOAD) and the mentoring breakfast and lunch.
In addition to submitting a current resume, applicants are evaluated through essay responses. Important factors include career goals, NAADD involvement and institutional financial need. Specifically, this scholarship is designed for women and minority administrators who are interested in advancing their career in athletics development.
To be considered for the NAADD Diversity Initiative, applications must be submitted by Friday, March 23. Questions regarding the NAADD Diversity Initiative can be directed to Jason Galaska, NACDA Assistant Executive Director.
