Each year The Foundation for Developmental Disabilities provides funding through the Raymond M. Peterson Scholarship, a resource for the leaders of tomorrow. Funds are to be used by those studying for a career in the field of developmental disabilities. Recipients receive funding ranging from $500 to $3,000. Scholarships are available for students who are residents of San Diego and/or Imperial County and who plan to remain in the area to work. To be eligible for scholarships, applicants must demonstrate a financial need. Students are eligible to receive up to two individual grants from the Peterson Scholarship Fund.
The Peterson Scholarship period is now closed.
