Building the Scholarship Program
The Catherine S. Rice Scholarship Fund
The IETF needs additional generous donors to continue the scholarship program. With your support, we can help the many qualified and deserving applicants finance some of their educational expenses.
Catherine S. Rice retired in September 2015, after 18 years of leadership as the IETF’s Executive Director. One of Cathy’s passions at the IETF was to recognize the achievements of students dealing with essential tremor. To honor and help continue Cathy’s work with college students for years to come, the IETF Board of Directors established the “Catherine S. Rice Scholarship Fund.”
This fund is used to award as many as four scholarships to deserving students both in the fall and spring semesters. For anyone wishing to recognize the dedication of Cathy, the Board encourages donations to this fund, in her honor. For more information, please call the IETF office at (toll free) 888.387.3667.
