Mac Design Conference Awards 15 Student ScholarshipsStudents to attend the Mac Design Conference & Expo free. (May 11, 2004)
The second annual Mac Design Conference & Expo is proud to announce the selection of 15 students as winners of its 2004 scholarship program. The scholarship program provides full-time students the opportunity to attend the Mac Design Conference & Expo, a three-day training event taught by industry experts in Macintosh and design. Awarded students also receive a one-year subscription to Mac Design Magazine. The value of the scholarship awarded to each student is $500.
?One of the most rewarding parts of the Mac Design Conference & Expo is the scholarship program, says Dave Moser, chief operating officer of KW Media Group, the parent company of Mac Design Magazine and conference host. The nominated students are so exceptionally bright and creative we felt strongly that this years scholarship program be expanded to award 15 students versus 10 as announced earlier. The group chosen will spend three days learning from Macintosh and design pros, mingling with peers and talking about the world of design at one of biggest Mac conferences in the east this year, added Moser.
The scholarship program required educators from accredited learning institutions colleges, universities, high schools, etc. to nominate students they believe show great promise and an eagerness to learn.
