IOPFDA Announces 2023 Scholarship Applications
ROSEMONT, Ill. — January 5, 2023 —The Independent Office Products and Furniture Dealers Association (IOPFDA), a Division of ISSA, today announced the opening of applications for its annual scholarship. Candidates must have graduated from high school or its equivalent before July 1 of the year in which they would use the scholarship and have an academic record sufficient to be accepted by an accredited college, junior college, or technical institute. Students currently enrolled full-time in college or graduate school are not eligible. Employees and immediate family members of all IOPFDA member companies are eligible to apply from January 3 through March 31, 2023.
“Education is something that no one can take from you, but a college education comes with a hefty price tag,” said IOPFDA President Charlie Kennedy. “We encourage all member companies to share this opportunity with their employees and help our students in their efforts to be successful and productive, maybe even in the office products and furniture industry.”
Created more than 50 years ago, the IOPFDA Scholarship Fund has now awarded more than US$2.8 million in scholarships to deserving families of office products and office furniture dealers and is supported entirely through individual and member contributions. The fund recognized 30 college students receiving one-year scholarships in the 2021-2022 academic year.
