The Digital Signage Federation has established the Geri Wolff Scholarship Fund for young women majoring in computer sciences in order to interest them in a career in the digital signage industry.
The scholarship program will be administered by the DSF Education Committee, which will develop the award criteria, evaluate applications annually, allocate funding and determine award amounts. Awards may be used to defray the cost of university education, but may also be allocated to help pay for DSF student membership or DSCE certification for students prior to graduation.
Kim Sarubbi, 2014 DSF Chair said, “Geri [Wolff] was instrumental in the founding of the DSF, has a passion for our industry and has helped proactively initiate programs designed to encourage industry growth.” She added, “Because Geri also takes great joy in helping others in our industry, it seemed natural to recognize her efforts on behalf of all of us in this way.”
Geri Wolff, DSF Director of Marketing Communications & Membership, said, “This is an extraordinary honor for a wonderful cause that resonates with me personally. As a professional woman, I feel privileged to work with the DSF and all my friends and colleagues in the digital signage industry. I invite others to join me in ‘paying it forward’ as I pledge an annual $1,000 donation to this fund to ensure that we establish a program to attract young women to a career in our industry, where they can make a significant contribution.”
