The Melissa Pellegrin Memorial Scholarship Fund for Technical Communication
Are you a Technical Communication student pursuing a career in technical communication? Do you know someone who is? If you answered “yes” to one or both questions, the following information could be very important for you.
For over 15 years, our chapter has partnered with the University of Central Florida (UCF) to offer annual scholarships to exceptional Technical Communication students. All of this is in the honor of Melissa Pellegrin, UCF alum and valued member of the STC community, whose untimely death in 1997 sparked a phenomenal wave of community support. Melissa’s legacy lives on through the paid education of other promising individuals in the field.
We encourage all undergraduate, graduate, part-time, and full-time UCF students to apply for this scholarship opportunity. Annual awards are either $500 or $1,000, depending on the number of recipients selected to receive this honor. Those selected will also have their names added to a winners’ plaque that remains on permanent display at UCF. An individual may win this award up to two times: once at the undergraduate level and once at the graduate level. The deadline to apply is Monday, February 23rd, at 5:00 PM.
