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 open and all applications are due by noon on April 9th 2021. All finalists will be interviewed via Zoom. To download an application form with instructions please click here.
