The program, which draws on monies raised as part of the SCTE Foundation's multi-million dollar Advancing Cable Excellence (ACE) campaign, is intended to support a range of educational opportunities, from SCTE training courses and certifications to educational courses at accredited colleges or universities.
The program includes Foundation Grants of up to $1,500 to fund SCTE training and certifications for individuals who have been SCTE members for the last two consecutive years, as well as two Foundation Scholarships: a Diversity Scholarship targeted toward women and minorities, and a Scholarship for Engineering and Software Programming education.
The scholarships may be used to fund college degree programs at an accredited two- or four-year college or university, toward technical training programs through SCTE or for tuition for the SCTE-Tuck Executive Leadership Program or the SCTE-Georgia Tech Management Development Program. Scholarship applicants must be SCTE members for the last four consecutive years.
The deadline to submit applications is Sept. 21. Full eligibility requirements, application forms and deadlines for submissions are available at http://foundation.scte.org/take-advantage/grants-and-scholarships/.
