We are extremely proud of Columinator Amoné Redelinghuys who won the Qualitative Research Consultants Association (QRCA) Foundation Scholarship. The scholarship recognizes a qualitative researcher who is relatively new and establishing a career in this field. Amoné will receive free registration to the QRCA Annual Conference, which will be held October 7-9 in Orlando, Florida (USA), up to $1000 US for travel and accommodation expenses, plus free QRCA membership for the year the scholarship is awarded. Columinate is extremely proud of Amoné and look forward to working with her in implementing all she will learn and gain from the scholarship.

Amoné had the the following to say about the scholarship: “I am very grateful towards the QRCA for awarding me this scholarship and making it possible for me to attend their annual conference. Secondly, I am filled with excitement to attend the conference in Orlando where I will meet like-minded “quallies”. I look forward to sharing new ideas with people and finding out more about how qualitative market research is approached in different countries. Finally, I am inspired to attend the conference and soak up as much knowledge as possible. I believe that I will gain valuable insights and that I will be able to implement all that I have learned once I return. “

Earlier this year, Amoné also won a Silver Award and the Best First Time Speaker award at the SAMRA conference.
