In memory and in honor of Master Mary Davis-Cates, each year CNOMAA awards up to three scholarships to cover the cost of registration to IATC. These awards are offered to women of all ages actively training in Cuong Nhu that exemplify the spirit and dedication of Master Mary. At the time of her passing in May 2006, Master Mary was the highest ranking woman in Cuong Nhu.
To qualify for the scholarship award candidates must submit a written essay of not more than two pages discussing how training in Cuong Nhu has impacted your life. Previous winners are not eligible as the goal is to provide opportunities for as many women as possible.
Please submit papers by April 15th to Master Allyson Appen (firstname.lastname@example.org), Master Allen Hoss (email@example.com), and Sensei Gordon Eilen (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the subject: CNOMAA IATC Mary Davis-Cates Scholarship Application.
The deadline for applications is April 15, 2016. Recipients of the awards will be notified by May 1st.
