SCTE Foundation Seeking Applications for Catherine Oakes Scholarship

The SCTE Foundation said it is accepting applications for the Catherine Oakes Memorial Leadership Scholarship for Women, which was created to honor the former SCTE SVP of operations who died in November 2013 and is awarded annually to provide educational opportunities for women “who aspire to become leaders in cable engineering or operations.”

The SCTE Foundation said it will award the grant of $3,500 to be used toward registration in an industry leadership development or executive education program, such as the SCTE/ISBE Leadership Institute at Tuck Executive Education at Dartmouth or the SCTE/ISBE Leadership Institute at Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business.

Women applying for the scholarship must be members of the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers or its global brand, the International Society of Broadband Experts (ISBE).  The application deadline is Wednesday, Aug. 31, 2016.

Applications will be reviewed by past recipients of the Women in Technology Award. More detail about the program can be found here.

The inaugural recipient was Jeanie Warfield, product manager, video solutions for Time Warner Cable Business Class.
