THE INSTITUTE FOR EDUCATIONAL ADVANCEMENT'S
CAROLINE D. BRADLEY SCHOLARSHIP

CELEBRATING
20 YEARS

For two decades, the Caroline D. Bradley Scholarship has been helping gifted young people find community, support, and personal accomplishment. In 2002, the inaugural CDB Scholar class was made up of just five students from California. Today, IEA is serving over 140 scholars each year from across the nation. This unique program, one of the only merit-based, four year high school scholarships in the nation, has awarded 400 gifted young people with a life-changing scholarship, nurturing guidance and a supporting community of cross generational peers.

Your support is vital to IEA’s continuing administration and facilitation of the CDB Scholarship program which enables future CDB scholars to experience the educational opportunities and rich traditions of the past two decades. IEA has made a positive impact not only in the lives of our CDB Scholars, but also in the lives of thousands of other gifted learners by providing purposeful programs and services geared to enable them to reach toward actualizing their full intellectual and personal potential.

In honor of CDB's 20th, help IEA continue to impact the lives of gifted youth.

Please lend your support today.
