Program Overview

DESCRIPTION

The WiTT Member Professional Development Program is designed to support WiTT members in their pursuit of professional development opportunities that will allow them to either advance their existing IT career or transition into the field. Through this program, WiTT members may submit requests to have the costs of their professional development activities covered, either partially or in full, up to a limit of $1,000 per request. These activities include, but are not limited to, training, certification, and conference registration. The requests will be reviewed quarterly by the Scholarships Committee. All WiTT members are eligible to apply; however, preference will be given to applicants who  have been members of WiTT for more than 6 months and to those who have not previously received professional development funds.

·       A WiTT member
