WACO, TX — The Independent Equipment Dealers Association (IEDA) has awarded a $5,000 scholarship to a Texas student that was enrolled in a post-secondary heavy equipment repair program this spring.

The recipient is Joseph Briseno from Texas State Technical College in Waco. He was selected from 27 applicants by a team of IEDA member dealers.

"Our mission is to support independent used equipment dealers and companies worldwide by providing resources, education, and fostering ethical business practices," said a representative from IEDA. "We all need technicians in this industry. ... Offering scholarships to deserving students is our way of giving back as an association and supporting the future of the industry."

With over 200 members representing over 10 countries worldwide, IEDA is a self-regulating network of independent dealers in the used equipment industry. Members of the association are professionals that buy and sell heavy equipment. IEDA focuses its efforts on providing networking opportunities, education, marketing, and advertising to members that will result in increased sales for member companies.

With a focus on education and mentorship, IEDA aims to bridge the gap between academic learning and real-world industry experience. Scholarship applications open each year around September.
