|Education & Scholarships|
One major emphasis of the Distribution Management Association is to support educational programs and students at local area community colleges and Universities
The DMA also sponsors attendance by students to industry events in the Inland Empire. This is to encourage student involvement and the development of professional contacts. In addition, the DMA awards merit-based student scholarships each year to DMA members and family members. Hundreds of students have benefited over the last few years from educational support and scholarship activities provided by the association.
This support takes many forms including direct scholarships to students and purchases of text books for courses focused on logistics and supply chain management. The text books are loaned to students and re-used throughout the life of the texts. The DMA has also established endowed scholarships at Chaffey College, San Bernardino Valley College and Norco College as well as the Other Endowed Scholarship managed through the Riverside Community College District Scholarship Foundation. These endowed scholarships are collectively valued at over $100,000.
