IDDBA's Scholarship for Growing the Future
To support employees of IDDBA-member companies,
IDDBA offers academic scholarships. Awards up to $2,000 per semester are available to graduating high school seniors and current or returning college, vocational/technical, and graduate school students.
IDDBA's Professional Development Scholarship
IDDBA's new scholarship offers financial assistance up to $1,000 per year to IDDBA-member employees seeking to develop skills and credentials not within the structure of a degree program, such as individual classes, certifications, and training sessions.
Food Safety Certification Reimbursement
To promote food safety certification for members,
the IDDBA has developed
the Food Safety Certification Reimbursement Program. This IDDBA
program reimburses IDDBA retail members for their cost for food
safety certification exams.
If you teach culinary arts, pastry arts, food merchandising, food handling or other food industry-related courses, IDDBA's training programs (links on the left) are available AT NO CHARGE.
