George Nickolaus CD Graduate Student Award

The late George Nickolaus was a charter member of CDS and served as legal counsel to CDS until his passing. His family created the George Nickolaus CD Graduate Student Award Fund to honor his memory and to support graduate students enrolled in M.A., M.S., or Ph.D. programs emphasizing community development, at accredited universities in the United States. The award recipient must be in good academic standing and may receive the scholarship once per degree. For example, a student may apply for the grant as an MS/MA student and again as a Ph.D. student/candidate.
