Downtown Edge Scholarship


Created in honor of Adam Edge, a past Georgia Downtown Association (GDA) board member and downtown development professional of the highest quality, the Downtown Edge Scholarship was established to support the participation of downtown development professionals in statewide training opportunities. Adam was known for his commitment to growing as a leader and building strong friendships with fellow professionals. Engaging in professional development opportunities helps honor his legacy and adds a leadership edge to ongoing work in downtowns. GDA will annually provide $1,500 in matching scholarships to deserving downtown professionals to cover up to 50% of the costs for qualified training opportunities in Georgia. In order to be eligible for the scholarship an individual must be a local downtown development professional who is an active GDA member. The scholarship will take the form of reimbursement for training registration and lodging costs associated with the training, with a maximum reimbursement of $350. Payment of any other expenses is the responsibility of the scholarship recipient.
