Scholarship and Grant Applications Due March 31

Scholarships aren’t just for students anymore!

Like last year, four scholarships—two $1,000 scholarships for college students and two $500 scholarships for high school students considering a technical communication-related degree or certificate—will be awarded to applicants meeting the award criteria. In addition, our scholarship program has been expanded this year to also include a continuing education grant for current STC Chicago members.

Continuing education grant

Recognizing that education continues throughout a technical communicator’s career, the chapter is now proud to offer one continuing education grant (up to $500) for STC Chicago members. The grant must be used to offset the costs for any technical communications–related activity, for example, a webinar or class, attendance at a conference, etc. Applicants must provide information regarding the activity, and one winner will be drawn from the approved entries received. A paid receipt for the event must be provided in order to be reimbursed.

More information

The application deadline for all scholarship/grant entries is March 31, 2021. Check the Scholarships and Grants page for the latest information, including application forms. Please direct any questions you have about these scholarships to the scholarship manager at
