Ted Daywalt Scholarship

TAtech: The Association for Talent Acquisition Solutions has established a new scholarship program worth over $10,000.

The Daywalt Future Leaders Scholarship is an annual award established to further the advancement of the next generation of industry leaders and will be awarded annually to an individual who demonstrates exceptional commitment for excellence in talent acquisition technology. Honorees are individual innovators who challenge industry barriers. Their work represents a significant impact, while inspiring and encouraging others.

Scholarship Details

Honorees will receive a one-year TAtech company membership and free registration at two major TAtech conferences that year. (Travel expenses included.) That enables Honorees to network with the CEOs of other TA technology companies and their direct reports, providing both important industry contacts as well as business insights and knowledge.  In addition, Honorees will be provided with a free promotional sponsorship for their company at one of the events they attend and be given priority consideration for presenting at those meetings.


To deserve consideration for the Daywalt Future Leaders Scholarship Award, an individual must have demonstrated continuing innovation and commitment to the talent acquisition technology industry. This award is intended to recognize especially those individuals who actively inspire others.


Honorees must be currently employed by an industry start-up (in operation for a year or less) or start-up incubator which must not be a current or past corporate Member of TAtech. Honorees may not receive the award more than once.

If you would like to refer a worthy candidate for nomination, simply send an email with contact information and a short introduction to why this person should be under consideration to Scholarship@TAtech.org. Your introduction will be used only to open a dialogue during an initial interview with the potential nominee and would NOT be used for evaluation purposes. A member of the Review Committee will contact your nominee and let them know of your recommendation. Nominations close on Friday, August 3, 2018. Selection will be conducted by the Review Committee. The nominee will be introduced at the TAtech Fall Congress and World Job Board Forum on September 26-27, 2018 in New Orleans, LA.
