PIDC is excited to announce the second round of the PIDC-D’Alessio Scholarship for Urban Development. The scholarship was launched in 2019 to support graduate students at Philadelphia schools seeking to pursue a career in urban development and finance. The scholarship was created by PIDC in recognition of M. Walt D’Alessio’s decades of commitment and leadership at PIDC, his many years of service to Philadelphia’s business, civic, and governmental communities, and his support for people across the profession.
In fall of 2019, a seven member committee, made up of PIDC staff, narrowed the 67 scholarship applicants to select the winners of our first ever PIDC-D’Alessio Scholarship for Urban Development. The recipients each received a $2,500 scholarship and will also be offered a paid PIDC summer internship in 2020.
Now, 2020 brings an opportunity for two new recipients to be awarded scholarships. Click here to view the PIDC-D’Alessio Scholarship for Urban Development criteria and apply online soon.
