From a few previous Horace Webb Scholarship Winners...

"I was elated to win the Horace Webb scholarship. Not only did it help me pay for my final classes but receiving a free study guide and knowing that I can attend the test readiness class at no cost before my certification test helps to ease some of the stresses of testing. From earning this scholarship, I was also encouraged to attend the NVRA Convention where I was exposed to invaluable information about the industry and was able to network and pick the brains of working professionals. The Horace Webb scholarship helped me feel more connected with the voice writing community."

"I was thrilled to learn that I had received the Horace Webb Scholarship!  It was so easy to apply for and the benefits were tremendous!  I mean, who can't use a brand-new mask with all the accessories, $500 towards your school of choice, FREE first-time testing and test-prep workshop, plus other extras?  It was such a blessing to me and I am so thankful to have been chosen.  I am now a nationally certified court reporter from Realtime Voice Academy! I want to encourage those of you who are in school to apply for the Horace Webb Scholarship. You might get a nice surprise like I did! You will never know if you don't try.  Good luck!
