NOTIS Translation/Interpretation Tuition 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 take one translation or interpretation course of their choice, either in person or online. This could be at a college, extension center, an independent training, a webinar, etc. This tuition scholarship may be applied to NOTIS trainings.
Award: The scholarship will cover 80% of the scholarship winners’ tuition costs, with NOTIS paying up to a maximum of $750 per scholarship.
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 trainings 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 training they already attended).
If NOTIS notifies you that you have received a scholarship, you will pay for your registration cost up front. You would then send NOTIS a copy of your paid registration invoice. Upon receipt of those documents, the scholarship recipient will be reimbursed for 80% of the cost of the course, up to a maximum of $750. After completing the course, each recipient will write a blog post for NOTIS discussing the translation and/or interpretation profession (length of 300-500 words, to be submitted within 30 days after completion of course). *You do not need to register for the course 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 announced by October 25, 2019.)
