Marianne Bosley Memorial Scholarships

The TCB Council, in memory of Marianne T. Bosley, a long-time colleague of the FCC/TCB community, who passed away in June 2014, has created the Marianne Bosley Memorial Scholarship Fund.  Those of us who had the privilege of working with Marianne know she was constantly striving for quality and knowledge.  It is in that light that we seek to pass on her legacy to the next generation.  

The 2019 Scholarship application process opened on February 1, 2019 and remained open until April 1, 2019 .  We are currently reviewing the applications received.  Further details and application form can be found on the TCB Council Scholarship page.
