Let us help you get the most out of your student experience. Join VCRA! Student membership connects you to a network of Virginia court reporters, captioners, and firm owners in the Commonwealth. As a member, you will receive our quarterly Newsletter that will keep you up to date with what’s happening in Virginia and grant you access to our members-only Facebook group. Membership runs from July 1st through June 30th of the following year and will be prorated if you join in the middle of a cycle.
As a student, you can apply for a scholarship fund called the Carolyn M. O’Connor Education Fund Scholarship, with an award of up to $1,000.
If you are a student who is actively engaged in the study of court reporting, either enrolled in a traditional school setting or attending an online program, and you have completed at least one semester of court reporting school, along with passing at least one test at a minimum of 160 words per minute, then YOU should apply.
The next deadline for application submission is January 10, 2022. The recipient(s) of the award will be notified by February 15, 2022, along with being invited as our guest to our 2022 Convention being held March 25th – 27th in beautiful Lynchburg, Virginia, where they will be recognized and receive their award, along with a 1-year membership to VCRA.
