• Beatrice Warde Scholarship

    The TDC’s first female member, Beatrice Warde, was a journalist, scholar, and passionate advocate of education. Named in her honor and sponsored by Monotype, the scholarship recognizes one female-identifying college junior, whose work demonstrates exceptional talent, sophistication, and skill in the use of typography across current media, not just print.
