Dwight Brydie, a longstanding employee of EDD, was a committed & passionate advocate for youth, prior to his untimely death in January 2006. Dwight understood the need to and value of reaching youth on the youth level.
To honor his memory, the California Workforce Association has established a scholarship program in his name to assist in-program youth in California in achieving their educational and employment goals for the future. The $1000 scholarships are awarded yearly at the California Workforce Association’s Youth Conference – Youth@Work.
We will award as many youth as possible up to the maximum contributions to the Fund this year. The criteria and instructions to apply for the 2021 scholarship are indicated below. We encourage and invite applications from all eligible youth.
If you are interested in donating the Scholarship Fund or providing a scholarship, please email CWA Conference Coordinator, Matt Hidalgo, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to donate. The scholarship will be run through CWA's Foundation, a 501c3, and your donation will be tax deductible.
