CCHI Commissioners established the Discover HCI CoreCHI Scholarship in the spring of 2017 with the generous contributions from the language service companies. Currently, the scholarship is supported by contributions from LSCs, interpreter trainers, interpreters, CCHI Commissioners, and staff.
The purpose of the scholarship is to support interpreters of languages for which only the CoreCHI™ certification is currently available, including refugee languages and languages of lesser diffusion.
The scholarship is awarded by the Commissioners twice a year. Applications for a spring cycle are accepted in April-May and for a fall cycle in September-October. The awards for a spring cycle are announced on July 15 and for a fall cycle – on December 15.
