“I am pumped for this scholarship and love how it’s kind of like a competition with other applicants,” said UCLA sophomore and applicant Zach Hayden. “I’ve done some transcription work in the past and really like it because it’s interesting and varied, enables you to choose how many projects you want to take on and when you want to do them, and probably most importantly, it pays very well. And what I like about this scholarship is that it’s basically worth $900 with the stipend and certification, gives me another expertise to show future employers, and guarantees me work so I can help pay for my tuition.”
GMR Transcription has gotten a good response from the scholarship program and has consequently decided to offer it annually.
