CDA awards four RJ Young employees’ children with scholarship grants.
The Copier Dealer Association Scholarship Foundation was founded in 2005 to award grants to qualifying children of the CDA Membership. RJ Young has been an active member of the CDA for years. Since its inception, the CDA has been able to increase the amount awarded every year.
The CDA Scholarship Foundation welcomes applications from member-employee children and will award meaningful scholarship grants that demonstrate a need for assistance through the Federal Government FAFSA Application.
The Copier Dealer Association is a dynamic group of independent copier dealers across North America who share best practices, industry events and innovative strategies to help their businesses excel. Congratulations to the below RJ Young member-employee children who were awarded the 2019 CDA Scholarship grants.
