NENA’s Friends of 9-1-1 program is happy to announce the availability of ten Telecommunicator Continuing Education Scholarships! This doubles the amount of scholarships offered in previous years, thanks to the generous support of participants in our Holiday Scholarship Drive, as well as a grant from the Motorola Solutions Foundation.
This scholarship opportunity is open to any telecommunicator, call taker, or dispatcher with at least one year of experience and in good standing with his or her current employer. Supervisory and other managerial personnel are not eligible for this award. Each Telecommunicator Continuing Education Scholarship recipient receives the following:
- Complimentary registration to the NENA 2017 Conference & Expo
- Complimentary registration for a one-day pre-conference course of choice at NENA 2017
- A $1,000 travel stipend
To be eligible for a scholarship, you must complete and submit the scholarship application and provide a current resume. Applications will be accepted through April 7, 2017. Scholarship winners will be notified no later than May 1, 2017.
Please note, you do not need to be a NENA member to take advantage of this scholarship!!
