IOPFDA Scholarship Program


Created more than 50 years ago, the Office Furniture Dealers Alliance (OFDA) Scholarship Fund started with a $5,000 donation and has now awarded more than $2.5 million in scholarships to deserving families of office products and office furniture dealers. Supported entirely through individual and member contributions, the fund recognized 25 college students for the 2019-2019 academic year.

Judged by an independent panel, not only are applicants scored for their academic success, but for their outside interests, extracurricular activities, community services and financial need. Any person who is an employee or related to an employee of an Association member firm may apply.

Membership status is verified. Candidates must have graduated from high school or its equivalent before Jul. 1 of the year in which they would use the scholarship. Candidates must have an academic record sufficient to be accepted by an accredited college, junior college or technical institute. Students already in college or graduate school may also apply.

The deadline to apply for the 2020-2021 OFDA Scholarship is March 2, 2020.
