The MCA-i/VO Peeps Educational Scholarship selection committee has been screening applications and will announce the worthy recipient on May 15, 2012. Applications have come from both VoiceOver professionals and newcomers based in Texas and Florida as well as various parts of California.
The committee reports that while the number of applicants is not large (a little over a dozen) the quality of each is impressive. It will be a difficult task to pick only one from such a deserving group.
