Foundation News – Edmunson Scholarships Deadline Announced

FoundationThe Employee Ownership Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2013 Charles R. Edmunson Scholarships. The deadline for all 2013 Scholarships is March 8, 2013.

This Scholarship program honors employee ownership leader and advocate, Charles R. Edmunson, who dedicated a significant part of his life to educating employee owners of the benefits of widespread ownership in a free enterprise system. Mr. Edmunson was also instrumental in the creation of the Employee Ownership Foundation.

An Edmunson Scholarship awards an ESOP employer up to $1,250 to defray the expense of sending employee owners to employee ownership training programs such as the Employee Ownership Foundation’s Employee Owner Retreat or the Association’s Annual Conference in Washington, DC. The Scholarship may also be used for Association Chapter and Regional Conferences. The Scholarship is for non-managerial employee owners. There are two Scholarship categories in 2013: Recognition of Achievement and Ownership Thinking Development.
