Professional Development Scholarship Program Offered by the Wyoming Economic Development Association

22 JUN 2023


One of the ways the Wyoming Economic Development Association (WEDA) supports the professional development of economic developers is by hosting conferences and sharing information about courses and classes to help work toward credentials and growing skills and knowledge. We understand that economic developers may not always have the funds to participate. Through our Professional Development Scholarship Program WEDA helps remove this barrier to education and growth. 

Designed for professionals directly involved with the economic development efforts within their communities, the program helps by assisting with the training costs of our conferences. By providing scholarships, WEDA makes training and professional opportunities more accessible. 


As a benefit of the WEDA membership, scholarships are available to members beginning three months after initial dues are paid to WEDA or to individuals who are added as representatives of an existing membership. Scholarships may cover training costs, tuition of registration fees and travel expenses. Learn more about WEDA and discover our other membership benefits

This project was developed by the Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network and funded through a Cooperative Agreement with U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) funds appropriated by Congress through the CARES Act to assist businesses in recovering from the negative effects of COVID-19. SBDC appreciates ongoing support from the SBA, The Wyoming Business Council, and the University of Wyoming.
