NSDTA Joan Carrera

2020 Memorial Conference Scholarship Guidelines

What are Joan Carrera Conference Scholarships?

Joan Carrera was a pioneer in staff development and training, a mentor, an inspiration, and a founding member of NSDTA. Due to her generosity, NSDTA is able to offer conference scholarships in her name to people involved in training and organizational development in public human services agencies. Joan and her husband, Louis Carrera, established the Joan Carrera Memorial Scholarship Trust which has been used since 2007 to provide the scholarships to NSDTA Conference 1st time attendees. The Carrera’s generous support allows scholarship recipients to attend the conference at partial to no cost.  Scholarships are open to anyone who provides training or organizational development technical assistance to public human services employees.


Full Scholarships will be available for those selected by the scholarship committee and can include:

  • Full Virtual Conference registration to Experience NSDTA 360: New Directions 
  • Special Welcome Workshop for all Scholarship Recipients
  • Special Aknowledgment as a Schoarlship Recipient Winner
