The Sue Scott Scholarship
In June 2002, the Professional Development Committee proposed naming the ALRID scholarship for taking the RID performance tests to honor one of Alabama's interpreters who has been a strong RID supporter and advocate, initiated an interpreter training program in Alabama, and has demonstrated a life long involvement in RID, interpreting and interpreter education. The recommendation was accepted and the Sue Scott Scholarship Award was born. In the summer of 2003, ALRID voted to setup the Sue Scott Scholarship Fund by increasing membership dues an additional $5 and apply the increase towards this fund.
What is this scholarship?
The Sue Scott Scholarship Award is awarded to interpreting or transliterating candidates to help offset the costs for taking the RID Generalist Performance Exam. The Sue Scott Scholarship Award (approved in Motion 2003-03) states: “ ALRID shall annually, as funds permit, award scholarships for the partial payment (50%) of one RID Generalist Written or Performance test (CI or CT) or the CDI test to promote certification of interpreters in the state of Alabama.”
