SVC Foundation is dedicated to the education of those in the vacuum coating technology fields. While standard scholarships
help those in school with tuition and expenses, we never stop learning and there are always opportunities to expand our knowledge
even after graduation. Our new “TECHNICAL SCHOLARSHIP” is intended to further the education of those working in
the field of vacuum coating technology. Scholarships provide a financial award to be used toward:
Tuition, books and fees
to appropriate conferences
For example, the SVC Techcon offers an excellent
Educational Program and we would welcome applicants requesting reimbursement for travel, registration, and tuition for classes
in Orlando in 2018.
It is anticipated
that numerous scholarship awards will be made annually. However, the SVC Foundation and its Scholarship Committee may vary
the number, amounts and types of awards based on factors such as funds available as well as the number and quality of applications
received. Awardees will be selected using a blind process of the reviewers to give equal opportunities to various employers.
