The Nette Nelson Travel Scholarship Fund was established for the dual purpose of honoring the memory of Nette Nelson and to help defray the expenses of CDS members in good standing who wish to participate in a community development conference outside of the recipients’ home continent by presenting a paper or workshop or giving a major address, including at the CDS Annual International Conference if the CDS gathering is outside of the recipients’ home continent.
One scholarship will be offered in 2019 in the amount of $2,000. The recipient will be recognized at a plenary session of the CDS Annual International Conference should they attend the conference. Although the CDS member is not required to attend the CDS Annual International Conference to receive the funds, they are still encouraged to do so. A CDS member may not receive this scholarship more than once.
Deadline: April 8, 12:00 pm (noon) CDT
