Applications are now being accepted for the SCTE Foundation's Catherine Oakes Memorial Leadership Scholarship for Women, an award that recognizes, rewards, and provides educational opportunities for women who aspire to become leaders in cable engineering or operations.

The $3,500 scholarship, open to all women who are SCTE/ISBE members, is to be used toward any program that is intended to advance the recipient's career in the industry. Applications will be reviewed by past recipients of the Women in Technology Award.

The application deadline is May 1. More information about the Oakes Scholarship and an application are available at https://foundation.scte.org/Foundation/Advantage/OakesMemorialScholarship/FOUND/catherine-oakes-memorial-leadership-scholarship-for-women.aspx.

The Oakes Scholarship was created to honor the SCTE senior vice president of operations who passed away suddenly in 2013. The scholarship is funded entirely by donations earmarked specifically for it. Donations can be made via the SCTE Foundation website, http://foundation.scte.org/.
