As part of our commitment to the IDEA principles of Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access, we are excited to announce that we are doubling the number of annual scholarships awarded from two to five.
Are you a health care professional providing care and education to under-served communities AND working toward their Certification for Diabetes Care and Education Specialists (CDCES)? If yes, you are encouraged to apply. Qualified Applicants are planning to take their CDCES exam within the next few years, are passionate about improving diabetes care, and have a financial need. Each scholarship awarded covers course registration for our Virtual Diabetes Conference, and our top two recipients will be awarded the Complete Virtual Conference Package (valued at $569), and the other three recipients will receive our Deluxe Virtual Conference Package (valued at $479).
“Making a Difference” Scholarship: Coach Beverly and her team are committed to improving equity and access to diabetes training and education to promote a diverse group of healthcare professionals to deliver diabetes care. We don’t want financial barriers to stop anyone from participating in our conferences. In appreciation of those who are role models and advocates for the best diabetes care in their communities, we are thrilled to offer these scholarships.
We are offering 5 scholarships for the entire registration of the Virtual Conference. 2 scholarships for the Complete Virtual Conference Package and 3 scholarships for the Deluxe Virtual Conference Package.

The goal of these scholarships is three-fold:
Our Commitment to IDEA Principles:
We are committed to promoting diversity and inclusion in our educational offerings. We recognize, respect, and include differences in ability, age, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, size, and socioeconomic characteristics. Our goal is to promote equity and access, acknowledging historical and institutional inequities. We offer a safe space when approached with cultural humility and an openness to the cultivation of cultural competence. Beliefs, experiences, identities, and differences in abilities, age, size, socio-cultural / socioeconomic characteristics, and political affiliations are considered and respected.
The use of DES products does not guarantee the successful passage of the diabetes certification exams. CBDCE & ADCES does not endorse any preparatory or review materials for the certification exams, except for those published by CBDCE & ADCES.
**To satisfy the requirement for renewal of certification by continuing education for the Certification Board for Diabetes Care & Education (CBDCE), continuing education activities must be applicable to diabetes and approved by a provider on the CBDCE List of Recognized Providers (www.ncbde.org). CBDCE does not approve continuing education. Diabetes Education Services is accredited/approved by the Commission of Dietetic Registration which is on the list of CBDCE Recognized Providers.
