The purpose of this scholarship is to assist CDI professionals by enhancing their careers with further education and to increase collaboration among colleagues by sharing knowledge.
Scholarship awards:
ACDIS will award four scholarships annually for the following educational activities. Please note that ACDIS will provide each recipient with the registration, login instructions, etc. for their award, rather than a monetary prize.
- 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
Additionally, recipients must use the scholarship in the calendar year during which they were awarded. For example, a 2024 conference registration recipient would be required to attend the 2024 conference in order to keep the award.
Applicant requirements:
Applicants must be active in the CDI field, working in the profession. They must be able to demonstrate that fact with a letter from their manager or supervisor verifying employment. The letter must include the organization name, dates of employment, and be written on organization letterhead. Applicants must also provide the name and contact information of an additional professional reference.
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.
