Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO) is an international, nonprofit
organization whose members are concerned with the development and enforcement
of uniform food, drug and other consumer protection laws. Through its
committees and the efforts of its Regular and Associate members, AFDO supports
legislation, develops and circulates “model codes,” publishes information
circulars and generally works to aid in the overall implementation of sound and
effective consumer protection and regulation.
In 2017, AFDO established a non-traditional continuing education tuition reimbursement fund to be awarded annually to worthy officials who are currently employed at a state, local, tribal, or territorial government agency and are returning to college or continuing their education to benefit the food and/or drug safety arena. Each award amount is not to exceed $1500 and is not renewable.All applications must be received by April 15 of the current year to be considered for the current year’s award.
