Mackie and SAE Announce International Scholarship ContestApplications now available for scholarships (February 11, 2005)
Building on a longstanding educational partnership, Mackie and the SAE Institute are pleased to announce the first ever SAE Institute/Mackie International Scholarship Contest, which will award one international and one US, full tuition scholarship to the SAE location of the applicants choice.
As part of the application process, potential students must submit a portfolio of creative works or productions for review. Entrants must also provide an outline of their own relevant experiences and goals in the audio industry, as well as a statement explaining why they are the best candidate to receive this scholarship. Applicants will then mail entries and related submissions to the SAE campus that they would like to attend. All 41 participating SAE Institute campuses around the world are accepting entries from February 14, 2005 through March 31, 2005.
Downloadable applications are currently available at http://www.sae.edu/scholarship/index.html#
Each individual school will select two finalists from their location. These two finalists will then be submitted to Mackie for final judging, and Mackie will choose one international and one US scholarship winner.
