CLEVELAND - NAADD is now accepting applications for the 2018 Diversity Initiative. This year will mark the twelfth 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.
Additional criteria for the Diversity Initiative are;
- Applicants cannot be selected more than twice for the program
- No more than one staff member per institution can be selected annually
- Applicants cannot be undergraduate students
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 on the front end of the Convention.
Applicants are evaluated through essay responses. Important factors include career goals, NAADD involvement and institutional financial need. Specifically, this stipend is designed for underrepresented administrators who are interested in advancing their career in athletics development.
To be considered for the NAADD Diversity Initiative, applications must be submitted by Monday, January 8.
