DSME Certification Scholarship Application
If you are interested in receiving financial assistance to cover the cost of becoming an accredited or recognized Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME) site through American Diabetes Association (ADA) or American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE), please complete the following scholarship application. Financial assistance is limited to 30 sites in the first year, but all interested sites can receive free technical assistance in becoming an accredited or recognized DSME site. This application asks questions about your organization overall, your organization’s DSME program, staff credentials, and the population you serve.
Organizations operating in areas of geographic need and/or serving high-need populations will be given priority for scholarships. Because of this, you will need to list all of the ZIP codes in which you provide DSME services as part of the application.
Organizational need (financial, capacity, etc.) will also be taken into consideration. We may be contacting you for more information about your organization in order to make the final decision of the 30 scholarships awarded.
