Dwight Brydie Scholarship Fund History

Dwight Brydie, a longstanding employee of EDD, was a committed & passionate advocate for youth, prior to his untimely death in January 2006. Dwight understood the need to and value of reaching youth on the youth level.


To honor his memory, the California Workforce Association has established a scholarship program in his name to assist in-program youth in California in achieving their educational and employment goals for the future. The $1000 scholarships are awarded yearly at the California Workforce Association’s Youth Conference – Youth@Work. Depending on the number of contributions to the Fund, we will offer two or more scholarships in 2020. The criteria and instructions to apply for the 2020 scholarship are indicated below. We encourage and invite applications from all eligible youth. If you or your organization is interested in contributing to the scholarship please email info@calworkforce.org, Subject line: DB Sponsorship
