SIG News
From 30 applications, one of our largest applicant groups yet, the winners of the 2014 Diane Feldman Technical Editing Undergraduate and Graduate Scholarships from the Technical Editing Special Interest Group have been chosen.

Amy Ketterer is our undergraduate scholarship winner. Amy is a senior in Technical Communication at Missouri S&T; she spent her summer as a technical communication intern at the Missouri S&T Office of Technology Transfer and Economic Development. She plans to join the field as an information architect and technical editor.

Cat McGinnis is our graduate scholarship winner. Cat has extensive professional technical editing experience in government and nonprofits. She is earning a Master’s degree in Technical Communication from the University of Wisconsin Stout and an editing certificate from the University of Chicago. She wants to teach government employees to use plain language to foster public participation in policy construction. She is also currently performing research on text-optimization editing.

About the Scholarship
The Technical Editing SIG Scholarship is awarded each year in honor of Diane Feldman, a long-time STC and Technical Editing SIG member who passed away in 2010. Diane Feldman was an Associate Fellow of STC and was the manager of the Technical Editing SIG for seven years. Through unwavering dedication and leadership, she successfully re-chartered and re-focused the SIG in difficult times, ultimately initiating a thriving and growing SIG. She also mentored many of the SIG leaders throughout their tenures, leaving a lasting mark on those leaders and their careers.

The STC Technical Editing SIG plans to award an undergraduate and a graduate scholarship in 2015. For more information, go to http://stc-techedit.org/Scholarship.
