2011-12 USITT-NBS Scholarships to the National Conference in Long Beach CA
Thank you to USITT, all of our NBS members, SECOA, and Stage Technology for making these scholarships possible. Without the membership and corporate sponsorship we would not be able to offer the number of scholarships that we do and in an amount to truly help offset the expenditures of travelling to the annual conference.
Thank you to our scholarship reading committee – Alicia Wold, Jerry Kraft, Mickey Henry, Mike Messer, and Rooth Varland – for taking the time to review all of the scholarship applications and accomplish the difficult task of selecting the ones to receive scholarships.
Thank you to all of the students that applied for USITT-NBS Scholarships. The opportunity to attend the annual conference is a wonderful one and we certainly wish that we could offer more money and more scholarships to help cover the expenses involved, especially in the years when the annual conference is so far away.
And finally, thank you to all of the faculty/staff that encouraged their students to apply for the scholarships. Thank you for recognizing the value in student attendance of the annual conference and offering guidance to your students to help them get there.
