The CEDA Board of Directors’ Charles David Hughes Graduate Scholarship recognizes outstanding graduate students with an interest in careers that make a significant contribution to society and not-for-profit organizations.
Charles David Hughes (CDH) Scholars will be awarded a one-time $1,000 scholarship that may be used to pursue a graduate degree in a public service related studies program at an accredited college or university of their choice. The CDH scholarship may be used to supplement benefits from the college or university a student plans to attend and fellowships from other foundations or organizations. Students may use the scholarship to cover the cost of tuition, fees, books, room and board, and other college-related expenses.
