SCTE and the SCTE Foundation announced new grants, scholarships and special awards designed to advance the careers of current cable engineering professionals, as well as to create opportunities for engineers outside of the industry, including women, minorities and vets. The program, funded by SCTE Foundation’s multi-million dollar Advancing Cable Excellence (ACE) campaign, will support various educational initiatives. It includes Foundation Grants of up to $1,500 to fund SCTE training and certifications for individuals who have been SCTE members for the last 2 consecutive years, as well as 2 Foundation Scholarships: a Diversity Scholarship targeted toward women and minorities, and a Scholarship for Engineering and Software Programming education. The scholarships may also be used to fund college degree programs at an accredited 2- or 4-year college or university, toward technical training programs through SCTE or for tuition for the SCTE-Tuck Executive Leadership Program or the SCTE-Georgia Tech Management Development Program. Scholarship applicants must be SCTE members for the last 4 consecutive years. The deadline to submit applications is Sept 21.
