From a few previous Horace Webb Scholarship Winners...
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!J.H., Realtime Voice Academy
