Building the Scholarship Program
The Catherine S. Rice Scholarship Fund
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 named the IETF’s scholarship program in her honor. The “Catherine S. Rice Scholarship Fund” is used to award as many as six scholarships each year to deserving students.
Scholarships are made possible by your donations and funds from the Lois and John Lichliter Estate. If you want to be involved in supporting students with essential tremor as they work toward their higher education goals, consider making a donation. For more information, please call the IETF office at (toll free) 888.387.3667.
We Connect Now is dedicated to uniting college students with disabilities in access to higher education and employment issues.
