Who is ECF?

The Educational Communications Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit charitable and educational organization chartered to support the audiovisual communications industry. The International Communications Industries Association, Inc.® (ICIA®), established ECF to address the industry's need for a high-quality workforce and in 1999 endowed it with $1 million to fund scholarships for engineering students.

Where can I learn more?

Go to Membership for information about the Association and its members. When you see a corporation's name, go to its website to see what it does and you will get an idea what kinds of engineering jobs are available in the industry.

Go to Exhibitions for information on the Association's trade show, which will be held in June. Over 25,000 people will be in attendance and ECF will introduce the 2001-2002 Scholarship winners.

What if I have questions?
