Support a Worthy Scholarship
Proceeds from the InterChange Technical Writing Conference fund
the InterChange Scholarship, a $500 award to a student enrolled
in the University of Massachusetts Lowell's Technical Writing
Certificate Program. The faculty of the program and the STC
award the scholarship on the basis of merit. Your participation
at InterChange directly assists a student about to enter the
technical communications field.

Last year's scholarship recipient, Carol Eyman, now works for
PennWell Publishing in Nashua, NH, where she is Production Editor
of "Laser Report", the bi-weekly newsletter of "Laser Focus World
Magazine." Eyman feels that last year's conference was helpful
in orienting herself and other new professionals about current
issues within the technical communications industry.
