    The Scholarship
    The NVBF makes scholarship awards available for tuition only to prospective broadcasting professionals annually.
    Selected applicants will receive a full-year (a value of up to 15 credits per semester) award for their enrollment in a two-year or four-year college in a
    broadcast or related program. Recipients must maintain qualifying credit hours and GPA semester to semester.
    Scholarships will be paid in two installments directly to the school registrar following fall and spring enrollment. The spring installment is
    contingent on the student continuing to meet the scholarship criteria. Class enrollments will be reviewed for program applicability. All awards,
    grants and/or scholarships will be considered when determining the amount of the award. Recipients will be encouraged to participate in an
    internship at a TV or radio station. Internship will be flexible according to the recipient’s school schedule.
     Recipients will be encouraged to volunteer at several fundraising events held throughout the year. 

    Selection Criteria The selection committee will consider depth of thought, clarity of expression and commitment to broadcasting as the primary criteria. Extracurricular 
    activities, community and public involvement, and other interests will also be considered. Industry needs such as: sales, marketing, videographer, producers, digital, technical and engineering professionals may be considered when selecting the recipients.  Financial need may be considered, but is not required for eligibility; applicants are asked to indicate how their education is being funded. Submit up to three letters of recommendation.
