Each year, The Foundation for Developmental Disabilities provides funding through the Raymond M. Peterson Scholarship program, a resource for the leaders of tomorrow. 


Funding will be considered by the Foundation Board of Directors to provide scholarships for university or college students who are pursuing a career or presently working in the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities or a related field. Applicants must also be residents of and attending colleges or universities in San Diego and Imperial Counties.

A maximum of $3,000 per applicant may be awarded. To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must demonstrate a financial need.

The FDD scholarship program is available through an endowment established in recognition of Raymond M. Peterson's years of service and contributions in the developmental disabilities and child development field.

The application window for 2024 is now closed. Please sign up for our newsletter to be informed when it opens again in 2025.
