The Society encourages qualified students to apply for membership in its honorary societies, Sigma Tau Chi and Alpha Sigma.
Sigma Tau Chi recognizes students enrolled in a baccalaureate or graduate technical communication program who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or above, are exemplary participants in STC, and demonstrate the potential for significant contributions to the profession.
Alpha Sigma recognizes students enrolled in two-year and certificate technical communication programs who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or above, are active participants in STC, and demonstrate the potential to contribute to the profession.
In early September, details and applications will be sent to all directors of academic technical communication programs, Society directors, and advisors of student STC chapters. If you meet these qualifications or know of a student who does, please request an application from one of these contacts. The application materials are also available on the STC website at http://www.stc.org/component/content/article/133-awards/1219-stx-and-ax.
Students who are accepted into Sigma Tau Chi or Alpha Sigma receive one year’s membership in STC, a pin, and a T-shirt. The STC Board of Directors will notify the selected students after its January meeting.
Completed application forms and supporting documents should be e-mailed as attached Word or PDF files to David Dayton at email@example.com no later than November 1, 2008. By the same deadline, an official transcript must be mailed directly from the applicant’s school to this address:
2006 Glenhaven Place
Silver Spring, MD 20902
