Application for the Ambassador Scholarship Fund
2019 applications are now closed. 2019 Recipients
I am extremely grateful to EDRA for having selected me as one of the first recipients of the EDRA Ambassador Fund. It went a long way in facilitating my attending the conference, listening to some amazing speakers, presenting my poster, visiting some wonderful projects in New York city and meeting so many like-minded people! I hope to further this association by introducing my colleagues and students in India to EDRA and help spread the message of equitable, inclusive and responsive design environments. −Shilpa Chandawarkar, 2019 Ambassador Fund Scholar
