The Della A. Whitaker International Scholarship is a Society-level scholarship that honors a past Washington, DC Chapter member. The scholarship assists college students who are pursuing established degree programs in some area of technical communication and have completed at least one year of post-secondary education. Awards of $1,500 each will be granted toward school tuition and expenses. Two awards are granted to graduate students, and two to undergraduates.
Completed application forms must be received by February 15 of the year in which the scholarship is to be given. Graduate students must notify the committee of acceptance in a graduate program by March 20. (Students enrolling in a graduate program may not know their status by February 16. They will be evaluated like accepted students, but their eligibility is contingent upon acceptance and notification by March 20.) Applicants will be notified by mail of committee decisions by April 15.
