  1. Hello Andrew,

    I’m writing to inform you and members of the STC Manitoba chapter that the Technical Editing Special Interest Group (SIG) of the STC is now accepting applications for two $1400 scholarships from students pursuing studies in technical communication. Could you please pass along to chapter members and university students the scholarship announcement copied below? The Technical Editing SIG would like to see more applications from students outside of the United States this year, and we hope that chapter outreach will help us achieve this goal.

    Please let me know if there is someone else I should be contacting or if there is any way that I can help you share this information with students.

    Thanks for your help!

    The Technical Editing SIG is offering two scholarships of $1400 each.

    The first scholarship assists students who are pursuing an undergraduate degree in technical communication (or a related area, such as professional writing or digital media) and the second assists students who are pursuing a graduate degree in technical communication (or a related area, such as professional writing or digital media). Students applying for one of these scholarships are expected to be able to demonstrate their focus on topics related to technical editing through their academic studies, current jobs, special projects, or undergraduate/graduate program. The winners will be announced in the Technical Editing SIG newsletter.
