Economic development is a rapidly changing industry, but the core concepts remain the same. We strongly believe that every economic developer should have access to basic economic development training. We also understand that rural economic development is different from metropolitan because it requires more resources and it takes more time to make progress.

Both of these areas are the focus on Sunflower Electric Economic Development’s scholarship program.

Educational programs include opportunities such as:

  • The Heartland Basic Economic Developmental Course; and
  • The National Rural Economic Developers Association Annual Conference
  • Other opportunities will be considered on an individual basis.

In addition to educational scholarships, Sunflower Electric Economic Development will provide periodic rural development workshops for local economic developers in the region.
