The NSCA Education Foundation is awarding five $1,000 educational scholarships to students entering the commercial electronic systems industry. This scholarship program seeks to raise awareness of the profession and promote interest among today’s youth.
“The future of the commercial electronic systems industry relies upon the next generation of individuals entering the marketplace,” says Melissa Henderson, NSCA Education Foundation managing director. ”As part of NSCA’s outreach program, the Foundation and its supporters plan to educate students about our market and provide them with the resources and training necessary to begin their careers.”
In addition to the scholarship program, the Foundation will also provide 200 students with free NSCA memberships. Student membership benefits include access to an online job board and résumé database, free entrance to NSCA Expo, member pricing on NSCA University classes and updates on legislation facing the industry.
The scholarship application deadline is June 15, 2007. Award criteria and the application can be found on the NSCA Education Foundation Website at http://student.nscafoundation.org/. Winners will be chosen by a selection committee and notified by both mail and phone.
