The Institute for Educational Advancement (IEA) hosted the 2016 Bradley Seminar in Pasadena, California, on March 18-20.  The seminar brought together current Caroline D. Bradley Scholars, alumni, parents, and educators from across the country to focus on the theme, “Finding and Cultivating Your Voice.”  The weekend’s events included a variety of opportunities designed to encourage community-building and character development through workshops, panels, cross-generational conversations, speeches by members of the ninth class of CDB Scholars, and a keynote address by KR Sridhar, Founder and CEO of Bloom Energy.

IEA is dedicated to the intellectual, creative, and personal growth of the nation’s gifted and high-potential youth through an array of programs, including the Caroline D. Bradley Scholarship.  The CDB Scholarship was established through the generosity of Sarah D. Barder, a Bradley family member.  The national, merit-based CDB Scholarship identifies exceptional seventh-grade students who exhibit advanced intellectual ability and demonstrate academic and personal excellence.  

Since its inception in 2002, the CDB Scholarship has awarded four-year scholarships to 203 gifted students, giving them the opportunity to attend optimally matched high-school programs that meet their unique intellectual and personal needs.  Scholars also receive individual support, guidance, and educational advocacy through the efforts of IEA, led by its president and co-founder, Elizabeth D. Jones.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports IEA and the Caroline D. Bradley Scholarship.
