NIC Performance Exam applicants must submit proof that the NIC Knowledge Exam has been passed and they are eligible to take the NIC Interview and Performance Exam on RID/CASLI terms. CDI Knowledge Exam applicants must submit proof they are eligible to take the exam on RID/CASLI terms.
Applicants must submit a letter explaining the need for the scholarship, why you are the most appropriate candidate, and how you could positively impact the D/deaf, hard of hearing, and/or interpreting communities if the exam is passed.
Applicants must submit a letter of recommendation from a professor, Deaf professional, colleague, or mentor. Please have your reference send the letter directly to the SAGE committee at SAGE@pc-rid.org.
