The Susan E. Castellanos-Bilodeau Scholarship
In March 2010, NAJIT established a scholarship in memory of Susan E. Castellanos-Bilodeau, a devoted member.
Susan worked as a freelance Spanish interpreter supporting the New Hampshire Court system, and served as an interpreter for humanitarian mission works in the Dominican Republic. Susan was the Nominations Committee Chair for several years. She was a member of the ATA, NETA, NHITO and a member of the Red Cross Disaster Services.
The Susan E. Castellanos-Bilodeau Conference Scholarship was created for those NAJIT members who would otherwise be unable to attend the NAJIT conference due to financial difficulties. This yearly scholarship will allow one Active NAJIT Member to attend the conference without paying the registration fee. The scholarship is valued at $350.
Candidates interested in applying for the scholarship must send a resume or CV and a letter of 700 words or less outlining their interest in the scholarship. Candidates may discuss their commitment to NAJIT, dedication to the profession, and reasons for attending the conference. Only Active NAJIT members are eligible to apply. The application is due by April 15, 2014. Please send completed applications to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The selected candidate will be notified by April 30, 2014.
