The SVC Scholarship Fund is intended to further the education of people entering or already participating in a course of study important to vacuum coating technology at an accredited institution. Anyone attending an accredited technical, vocational, two-year, undergraduate or graduate school may apply, including students and practitioners already working in the vacuum coating technology field. Scholarships provide a financial award to be used toward tuition, books and fees at an accredited educational institution. The SVC Foundation annually appoints a scholarship selection committee to review scholarship applicant materials. The selection committee reviews all materials submitted and considers and weighs a variety of factors such as: relevance of applicant's field of study to vacuum coating technology and the goals of the Society of Vacuum Coaters and its charitable and educational foundation; the applicant's academic achievement, including grades, courses selected, interdisciplinary skills and interests; the applicant's personal qualities including motivation, social values, maturity, and goals; and financial need.
