Each year, the Puget Sound Chapter of the STC sponsors one scholarship, usually in the amount of $1000. The 2018 scholarship is being offered to students to further their education in technical communication.

The scholarship fund was originally (1986) established to honor two Society Fellows who made significant contributions to STC (at both the chapter and society levels) and to the technical communication community as a whole. Among their many accomplishments, James W. Souther and Myron L. White were instrumental in establishing the Puget Sound Chapter.
