“In the past months, the Type Directors Club, while going through its archives, discovered that Beatrice Warde was its first female member. It was very exciting to learn that Ms Warde, journalist, typographical scholar, and communicator on typography, was part of our organization. To honour her memory, TDC has named a scholarship after her.
The TDC Beatrice Warde Scholarship is sponsored by the Type Directors Club and Monotype in the amount of $5,000 and will be awarded to a female student currently enrolled in her junior undergraduate year to be applied directly to her senior year tuition, which begins September 2015 and concludes in May 2016.”
