-Recent college graduate with a letter of support from a former professor or current supervisor.
-Working professional or volunteer with a community-based non-profit organization with supporting letter from the director or supervisor of the program or organization.

IMI is very proud to announce that Dr. Janet Bennett, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Intercultural Communication Institute, and Bryan A. Stevenson, Executive Director of the Equal Justice Initiative, will be giving keynote addresses at the conference.

This is also the first year that we will be using Survey Monkey as a tool for the EDF Scholarship application process. It is our hope that the utility of this platform will enable IMI to streamline this process. We appreciate your patience and feedback.

Once your application is fully completed, click "Done."

Bullets, outlines & paragraph indents are not recognized by this platform. Please separate information into paragraphs.

In addition, to your submitted application, you will need to submit the following items to

(1) a one-page resume, including at least two references, and
