NOTIS Translation/Interpretation Conference Scholarship
Purpose: Through its scholarships program, NOTIS aims to support the translation and interpretation community by increasing access to essential training. This scholarship is intended to help NOTIS members travel and attend a translation or interpretation conference of their choice in person. Some examples of conferences include ATA, ALTA, CHIA, NAJIT, etc.
Award: The scholarship will be a maximum set amount of $1000 to cover the conference registration fees and offset some of the applicable travel and lodging costs.
Eligibility and Requirements: Applicants must be a member of NOTIS in good standing. Applicants may only apply for one scholarship at a time. Candidates will be evaluated anonymously by a committee using a predetermined set of objective criteria. Priority will be given for upcoming conferences in 2019 or 2020, but the scholarship may also be applied retroactively (i.e. applicants may apply for the scholarship to offset costs of a conference they already attended).
If NOTIS notifies you that you have received the scholarship, you will pay your registration fee up front. You would then send NOTIS 1) a copy of your conference registration and 2) a budget for travel and lodging costs. Upon receipt of those documents, NOTIS will send the scholarship amount. After attending the conference, each recipient will write a blog post for NOTIS discussing his or her experience at the conference (length of 300-500 words, to be submitted within 30 days after completion of conference). *You do not need to register for the conference in order to apply for the scholarship.
Please note: Previous recipients of a NOTIS scholarship are not eligible to receive another NOTIS scholarship for a period of 5 years after winning the scholarship.
Application deadline: October 4, 2019. (Scholarship recipients will be selected by October 25, 2019.)
