The Yu family will award a scholarship to an aspiring Asian Pacific Islander (API) leader. Lorraine Yu PhD, PMP, CSM, MCP, CTT+, EDI Discovery & Navigation Alum and past EDI Board of Director & Facilitator, has established this on behalf of her parents, David & Barbara Yu, who came to America with nothing but a dream, and through sheer focus, dedication, and hard work have created an environment for their children to pursue excellence in their chosen endeavors.

The scholarship is in the amount of $2,150 which covers half of the tuition for EDI’s Discovery Program. However, potential Navigation participants are welcome to apply.
