The Emerging Leader Scholarship Fund was established by the AUCD Board of Directors in 2013 with the goal of providing financial assistance to emerging Network leaders: self-advocates, family members, trainees, and young professionals; to attend the AUCD Conference. The Fund was created in conjunction with the retirement of Executive Director George S. Jesien, PhD, to honor his commitment to increasing leadership in the disability field.

The AUCD conference is a unique forum where emerging leaders will be able to learn from, share with, and network with hundreds of scholarly and community leaders in the fields of developmental disabilities, community organizing, public health, leadership, and much more. Current network leaders have found the AUCD Conference to be a momentous opportunity in their career as they get introduced to the leaders in the field and energize their career and leadership. This one event provides a national and international forum for exploring the latest developments in the field and connecting with peers and mentors.
