Reena Sonigrah, a Human Resource Development graduate student, is a winner of the John Coné American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) 2013 scholarship. Through the scholarship, winners are provided access to research, content, and resources relevant to the training and development profession. The ASTD has been established in more than 100 countries and is the world's largest association dedicated to the training and development.
In addition to Sonigrah, six other scholarship winners were selected from various institutions across the United States. "Research shows that membership in professional associations is correlated with career success, and ASTD is proud to award these scholarships to seven outstanding students," says Cami Best-Jones, manager of ASTD's Higher Education Community of Practice.
