NCRA student members who have been in an intern program in the past 12 months are encouraged to apply for the NCRF Gina Battaglia Memorial Student Intern Scholarship. Two $2,000 awards are available. Applicants must be nominated by their court reporting program through a letter of recommendation. See the scholarship page for full eligibility and submission details.
The scholarship was originally created by NCRF Trustees and Angel Gatherers Committee members to honor the memory of Gina Battaglia, daughter of Angel Stephanie Zeder Battaglia, RMR, CRR, a freelance court reporter from Hinsdale, Ill.
Gina passed away unexpectedly in October 2022. Gina’s mother’s Facebook practice colleagues and other court reporting friends started an NCRF fundraiser to honor Gina’s memory. She is also now an NCRF Memorial Angel.
Last year’s inaugural winner was Sophia Morris of Austin, Texas. “This award is another example of how amazing the stenography community is,” Morris said in a video when Rich Germosen, FAPR, RDR, CRR, a freelancer from North Brunswick, N.J., announced her name.
