The Society for Technical Communication (STC) is a professional association dedicated to the advancement of technical communication, with members and chapters all over the world. The Eastern Iowa STC acknowledges the importance of involving students in its program. For the past five years, we have hosted—along with Cedar Rapids area colleges and universities—an “STC College Night.” During that event we spent time with students to learn about their interests in professional writing careers and to share what we as practitioners have learned over the years.
To develop this relationship with students further, we are establishing two Eastern Iowa Student Membership Scholarships, worth $75 each, which will go to the payment of student membership in the STC. These scholarships will allow the students to be members of STC for one full year. The scholarship is open to students in any year of their program, first year through senior. Students will receive all the benefits that come with it, such as:
- Membership in the Eastern Iowa STC Chapter
- Access to its monthly magazine Intercom and quarterly journal Technical Communication
- Access to free and discounted professional webinars
- Discounted registration to the Annual Summit
Our 2016-17 Scholarship winners are:
