International Code Council Foundation Introduces Professional Development Scholarship Program
(Washington D.C.) ‐‐‐ The International Code Council Foundation (ICCF) today announced plans to offer a new professional development scholarship program entitled, “Code of Honor.”
The goal of the Code of Honor scholarship program is to ensure that the I‐Codes continue to reflect the consensus view of officials at all levels of government by providing funding to voting governmental representatives seeking to attend Final Action Code Hearings. Scholarship categories vary from Emerging Leader to Veteran Leader and include a dedicated “First‐time Attendee” award category. The 2010 scholars will be provided support to attend 2010 Final Code Development Hearings in either Dallas or Charlotte and 75 scholarships will be awarded.
Applicants may apply in a variety of categories; however, all Code of Honor scholars must be a Governmental Member Voting Representative. The application database will open no later than the first week of March and awards will be made on a first‐come, first‐served basis.
Additional details about the program are available online at http://www.icc‐foundation.org. Code officials interested in applying for the scholarships should visit www.icc‐foundation.org/scholarships#codeofhonor to learn about program details, qualifications, application requirements and to submit an online application once the process is open.
