PerScholas Grant Program
Continuing our commitment to advancing and encouraging skilled software testing, we are proud to announce the CAST 2014 PerScholas grant program.
AST will provide 10 PerScholas STEP students or graduates, a complimentary conference pass to our yearly conference, August 12-13 at the Kimmel Center in New York City. In addition, AST will accept donations in $1US increments, through August 1, all monies collected will go toward additional complimentary conferences passes for STEP participants.
AST encourages everyone to consider donating to this program, so we can send more PerScholas students and graduates to CAST.
UPDATE: Due to the conference selling out we are no longer accepting donations. Thanks to all those who donated, we were able to add one more student to the attendees list which makes it 11 in total.
