EVERY dues-paying member of GEDA is eligible to receive scholarship money. Inactive members or those that have allowed their memberships to expire are NOT eligible. The only exception is the Penn Worden Grant. This grant is designed for non-members as a way of engaging them in GEDA. To apply for the scholarship click here.
Annual dues are due for ALL members on January 1 of each year. Dues are not prorated for anyone. Invoices will be sent in November each year in anticipation of the January 1 due date. Special note - if you pay your dues starting in September, that payment will carry forward through the end of the following year.
All memberships are held by the individual. If you leave your company - the membership goes with you; it does not stay with the company. Memberships cannot be transferred from one person to another, neither can member benefits be shared by several people. (i.e. We cannot include multiple email addresses for one membership so that extra people are able to see our news and information.)
