Scholarship Opportunity EDIAFC Annual Conference 2024

The Eastern Division of the International Association of Fire Chiefs (EDIAFC) will be holding their 2024 Annual Conference on May 10‐11, 2024 at the Hilton Double Tree Guest Suites in Mount Laurel, NJ. The EDIAFC is sponsoring four scholarship opportunities for fire service members from Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, DC to attend the conference. The scholarship will reimburse scholarship recipients a maximum $448 for the conference registration ($125) and three nights of hotel expenses (110.80/night).

The leadership training available at the EDIAFC Annual Conference will help members address the unique needs of career and volunteer leadership in their department. The networking opportunities give them the chance to share ideas and solutions with colleagues from other states within the Eastern Division. The conference allows participants to interact face‐to‐face with leaders of rural and suburban combination departments.

Scholarship recipients will be required to submit all of their receipts at the conclusion of the conference for reimbursement up to the eligible amount. In addition, as part of the reimbursement process, attendees will be required to provide the EDIAFC Scholarship Committee with a three page synopsis of what they learned at the conference and how they will share such information with their department and/or jurisdiction.

Individuals applying for the scholarship must be a current member in good standing of a fire, rescue or EMS company within the state of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania or Washington, DC. The EDIAFC Scholarship Committee would like to encourage everyone to apply for this scholarship opportunity. You do not have to be a member of the EDIAFC to qualify for a conference scholarship.
