"I appreciate NOTIS so much for giving me the scholarship last year. My funds were low. Though funds are still at minimum, but not at zero as they were through this pandemic. I have grown professionally as a result. I was just starting out putting myself out there as a translator/interpreter, but being part of the NOTIS group through the scholarship program and attending the webinars provided by NOTIS was a big chance for me to discover I can be a business owner. Thanks, NOTIS!"

"I fully enjoyed JITF 2021 [ Japan Interpreting and Translation Forum ]—a huge success with over 770 registrants from all over the world! Kudos to the JACI board membersand JITF2021 organizers for running a seamless conference. And last but not least, I am tremendously grateful to NOTIS for the Conference Scholarship, which made it possible for me to gain valuable experience at professional meetings of my choice and advance my knowledge and skills as a Japanese interpreter and translator during this challenging time. Thank you very much!"
—Mariko Kageyama (Conference Scholarship Recipient, 2021)
"I am thrilled to be able to attend my first ever American Literary Translators Association (ALTA) conference with NOTIS' help - thank you so much! I will be proud to represent NOTIS and the fantastic community of literary translators we have here in the Pacific Northwest, and I look forward to sharing my conference experiences afterwards."
