The American Society for Training & Development (ASTD) recently announced that Griffith University graduate Ivy Toh, is a winner in the society’s 2014 scholarship program. Ivy recently completed the Master of Training and Development offshore program in Singapore.

ASTD is the world’s largest association dedicated to the training and development field. ASTD’s John Coné Scholarship program recognizes eligible post-secondary students studying the human resource development field.

ASTD awards six one-year membership scholarships and one scholarship for a student to attend the society’s annual conference, the premier event in the training industry.

The scholarships provide winners access to research, content, and resources relevant to the training and development profession.

“ASTD’s mission is to empower professionals to develop knowledge and skills successfully, and that mission extends to students — our future practitioners,” says Cami Best-Jones, manager of ASTD’s Higher Education Community. “Research shows that membership in professional associations is correlated with career success, and ASTD is proud to award these scholarships to deserving students.”
