Members of this committee select recipients of the Jane N. Ryland Fellowships and the Diane Balestri Memorial Scholarship through a process of soliciting applications and evaluating candidates, and advise the EDUCAUSE president on strategic redirections or enhancements for the programs. These programs provide grants enabling IT professionals to attend EDUCAUSE professional development events.

Committee members should bring significant management experience in institutions of broadly diverse size, type, and geographic distribution, and an interest in furthering the careers of newer members of the profession. (6 members, 3-year terms)
